A sad story out today, that started on our local news stations, but is now getting national play. Tragedy has that effect.
Sand collapse kills 9-year-old girl at Oregon beach
My gosh. What parent hasn't had a kid declare that they are going to dig a hole to China while playing at the beach? And you giggle, and watch them dig away. As long as they wait half-an-hour after eating before they go swimming, and put on sun block...how much trouble do you think your kid is going to get into digging in the sand?
Yet...it's the third 'sand cave-in' related fatality this year!
And yeah...I gave my kids a big hug after reading this story. My heart goes out the family in this one.
