It breaks my heart...

Those three little boys who died in Camden, NJ suffocated in the trunk of a car because they were playing and the latch closed on them...no one knew. Thank God they weren't murdered, but still. How scary does it have to be to be in a trunk with two of your friends (the boys were 5,6, and 11) and know that you may never come out? To have them dying around you and know you'll be next? It's so sad.

That's why I'm glad my car has a glow-in-the-dark handle in the trunk. I'm planning on keeping my car until it costs more money to fix it than it does to buy a new car. If Audi did something right, it was put a glow-in-the-dark handle in the trunk. The salesman's explanation: "we don't want kids getting caught while playing."

I would be crazy with grief knowing that my child died while playing. How can life end when you're so young and trying to be happy? It's times like these when I know God has to exist, because how could something so bad happen without some higher purpose? How could life itself be so cruel?

I have no idea, you know? I know my car doesn't have one of those things...it's a '94, so I don't think I'd ever let people screw around with my trunk.

It's just so sad. I know what you mean...there has to be a reason, yet it is so hard to find it. I'm glad it wasn't a murder, but it's still so sad. I mean, three young kids trying to play hide and seek or something, and it ends like that. It's terrible.

I'm very protective of my car, but I can't watch it all the time. I gave one of my friends the keys so he could sign a surprise birthday card that was in my backseat and he tried to drive off when I turned my back.

I'm also glad it wasn't a murder, because it just disturbs me how people can kill children. That Andrea Yates thing had me so shaken when it happened. She had her reason, but it wasn't rational to anyone else.

I understand. I'm protective of mine, too...no one else is allowed to drive it but me or be in it without me there.

I was pretty sure there were, but I wasn't positive. I think someone mentioned that to me once.
