Ok, no link to the original article, since I must have read it in at least 8 places today. But I can only offer sympathy to the family of Kevin Avalar, who was struck and killed by lightning yesterday while riding his bike.
Out of the 62 people that get killed by lightning each year in the US, it really sucks that a 15 year old boy was the latest victim. At that age, you still have some innocence about you, and nothing but the future ahead of you. All cut tragically short by Mother Nature.
As a parent to 4 teenagers, I hope that as we all take our next ride, we’ll take a moment to be thankful for the opportunity, and if we’re so inclined, offer a prayer for Kevin’s family.
