Something so powerful just hit me when I read this story about Zach Arend, 18, the seventh life claimed by the bus accident involving the Bluffton baseball team. Eighteen. Eighteen.
He was an innocent kid just looking to play some baseball. He survived the crash but succumbed to injuries days later. I can only imagine what those days must have been like. What those moments when he awoke from his nap to screams and the bus he was in tumbling over the side of a highway ramp.
My eyes well up with tears just thinking about it.
