This morning I learned of something incredibly tragic that happened in Ottawa. A young woman was running to catch a bus at around 7:15 in the morning; instead of catching the bus, she was hit by it, ending her life within the hour. I can only imagine what her rush was. Perhaps she was behind schedule to get to work. An important meeting. Some paperwork she was behind on. Perhaps she was rushing to get to school, to study for a test or do final edits on a paper. She never thought that rushing would end her life. None of us do, and yet it is not the first time that speeding ahead has ended in disaster.
