Heartbroken

by this story.

Mustafa graduated from Balboa in 2008, and was one of the sweetest, most mature, hopeful students I knew. His family had immigrated from Iraq when he was a kid, and he was just such an amazing young man.

Sadness like this feels like too much to bear. :(

i am so terribly sorry. every time i hear of a death -- any death -- it really makes me pause and think how much pain it causes. it is inevitable, but sometimes it seems to come way to early, or in a way that is so unfair.
