I was outside in the shade of the garage doing research on an essay or book whichever it turns out to be; it is basically for my grandchildren and the catechism class I will teach this fall. It will be called,”Tell me the story of Jesus from eternity to eternity”.
One of the local channel 11, news teams asked me if I knew anything about the accident on Sunday in which a small boy was killed on the main thoroughfare just behind us. I guess they heard the tape recorder playing some Blackwood Brother’s music, probably too loud, and no one else was home in the neighborhood.
The little boy, Abraham Garcia, had run into the street to look at a dead squirrel, and was hit about 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
I told them that I did not see anything ,and, that as a fire fighter in the refinery spectators just get in the way, so, I had not gone over there until Life Flight had been gone for about 45 minutes.
I usually walk that road, most every day, on the sidewalk and have noticed a lot of speeding. My black friend, Jerry, and I were drinking a cold class of water on an August evening when we witnessed a dog hit by someone whom we guessed was going at least 50 miles per hour. One of us stated that we were glad it was not a child as the speed limit is 30 miles per hour there, but it is a busy street as it connects Dixie Farm road to the Sam Houston toll -way and further on it is the best way to get to the Hobby airport.
They talked to me for about thirty minutes and their presentation was edited correctly.
The boy lived only 3 doors south of us..I’m always joking with the children by asking them what they learned that day in school? They get out of school about the time I am finishing my around 5 mile trip.
I have tried to see the neighbors, since Monday morning, and when we do Rosalie is planning to cook them something. It will be good!!!
Please pray for them.
Grace and Power, Acts 6:8
