    This weekend started out as one of the best of my life. Me, Fatfish_55, and Buknasty went down to Mark Twain Lake at 4 in da morning to do a little crappie fishing. At first the bite was slow, we got snagged about every other cast and Fatfish broke his rod tip. After that the day when great. We hooked up the power converter and listented to some music while catching crappie about every other cast. We fished till about 5 in the evening then set out our jugs and trout lines for overnight soakin. Two of our other friends came down to camp with us. We cooked crappie, mushrooms, and deer tenderloin and were having the time of our lives. Some of us went to bed around 10 and the others later.
    The next morning me and my friend Jon wake up and we are the only 2 at camp. Our other friends went out on the boat to check the troutlines, jugs, and to do a little crappie fishing. Then our friend from town calls us telling us that two of our good friends got in a car wreck last night. He said that my friend Josh was in the hospital with a concussion and bruised lung and my other friend Mark was completly fine. So we had nothing to worry about and everything was going to be ok. When Fatfish and Buknasty got back from fishing I told them about the wreck and we talked about how they were probably doing something stupid since they hit a tree. Then we called my friend back just to make sure they were both alright. He was crying, but still said that both of them were fine and he was about to go talk to the sheriff.
    Five minutes later my girlfriend called me. She was crying and I didn't understand why since both of them would be alright. Then she told me the news that Mark was killed on impact and Josh was in the Intensive care unit with broken ribs and a punctured lung. Right then and there 30 miles from home I realized I lost 1 of my best friends and that another might not make it. I thank God that my mom let me go camping because I have a feeling I would of been out at 3 in the morning driving around with them. Please keep them in your prayers.

    Sorry for your loss... Stories like that just make me cringe...

    The world was made round so that we would never be able to see too far down the road.

    Today me and a bunch of my friends went down to the site of the wreck. It's unbelievable. There is only 1 big tree in the whole area and thats the one they had to hit. Its to unreal. Our school doesn't even care they expect us all to be in class tomorrow on a normal schedule with no problems. Thursday is going to be the worst day of my life having to bury a friend already. Thanks for the support. I'll post pictures of the site later.

    Sorry To Hear About Your Friends. I Will Pray That God Will Console The Family And That He Will Heal Your Hearts And Touch Your Friend In The Hospital. The Lord Is Not Through With You. I Had A Terrible Crash On My Motorcycle Last September I Shouldn't Be Here But God Is Not Through Yet. Just Remember That Not One Sparrow Falls To The Ground That He Doesn't See. How Much More Does He Care For Us.

    Today I went to the hospital to see my friend. He is still in a coma but he was moving around a bit when I was there. Kinda sucks for him because he was probably gonna have a full ride for soccer to college. I went to the wreck site again and took a bunch of pictures and went and saw their car for the first time. Almost all of the roof was ripped off it and the stearing wheel was smashed in all the way to where the center console should be. I'll be posting pictures in a few days after the funeral and visitation.
