Tragedy Today

I tried all day to think of something to blog about...and nothing came to me.

A 21-year old from my town, Santa Barbara, was hit and killed by a drunk driver in Rhode Island at about 2 am this morning.  He was a freshman at Brown University.  He started college late because he had been serving in the Israeli Army for the last 3 years.

This was some of the worst news I could have woken up to this morning, and our whole community is just devastated.   Avi was one of the nicest, most amazing people you could have ever met.

So this post is dedicated to his honor.  You'll be missed Avi Schaefer.
