Such sweet smiles.

Life is often too unfair to comprehend.

My heart is full of grief for their families, and sadness for the brevity of their lives.

Namaste, Little Climbers.
What I love about running is you can meditate while running. It's a peaceful place.

You have friends, you make your community large, you live and love, and you will know loss....
It has touched us before...
These two were so young and innocent.
May a loving God surround the Moms and Dads in his loving embrace, as well as their friends.
