One Afternoon

I drive by the field where it happened almost every day out of necessity unless I want to go twenty minutes out of my way and sometimes, many times, I do.

It was a day, like today, soft sunshine, hot temperatures, the hint of a breeze, but the field was crowded with laughing, hooting, daring teenagers, some dreaming to be World Cup stars, my daughter included.

One instant, one individual, one gun was all it took to irrevocably alter lives, to irrevocably alter my life.
