Winter. Dead. (Patch photo by Todd Richissin, who danced on the grave.)

Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.

The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

I'm so sorry that this had to happen. I wish no parent this type of tragedy. But the reality isRead More this. Many of those high school students cross that street in the morning and afternoon, especially for lunch. I have observed many of them spitting and kicking cars, even when they are at a stand still. Hundreds of them cross when they feel like it to get lunch from Mikey D's or Burger King. They have been seen throwing their garbage at people, on the streets and at cars. They hardly ever follow the crossing signals or utilize the crosswalks. Alot of these parents think their kids are "angels", but step outside and observe what their real behaviors cause other people. Speaking as a driver, these kids have no regards for their own lives or the lives of others.

That's a bit heavy. I do agree that there is zero need for improved safety measures since she wasRead More crossing at a redlight, but you don't need to lump her in with a group that hurls trash at cars.

This is a very sad situation for all involved. Think of the guilt that the driver is going to haveRead More to live with although it sounds as if they didn't do anything wrong. Luther Reynolds of the Montgomery County Police Department was quoted in the article saying "We all need to model this behavior as adults". This is so true. I live in the Gaithersburg area and way too often I see families(where the adults along with their children) are walking in the middle of the street (even in places where there is a sidewalk), crossing anywhere they please (not in crosswalks), and stepping in front of moving cars (knowing that technically pedestrians have the right of way). I am not saying that this young girl was at fault, but I see a whole new generation of children who are learning from their parents this reckless behavior and I have to agree with Officer Reynolds when he says that we have to lead by example. I am saddened by this tragedy, especially having daughters of my own. I can't imagine what the family is going through. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a tragedy like this to make people change their ways. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Christina. To all, please use this as a learning experience for your children and yourselves, so that at least something good may come of something so horrific.
