Today I found out that a charter bus was involved in an accident in Georgia at 5:30 this morning. The bus was on its way to Florida, it was carrying the baseball team from Bluffton University (formally Bluffton College). I probably don't know anyone that was on the bus but that is not what matters. Bluffton is a school of just over 1,100 students. It is a very close knit community. When I attended Bluffton a former student was killed during a freak tree cutting accident in Orrville, Ohio. That incident shook the campus. I can't imagine what this accident will do since it claimed 6 lives. You can read the article at FoxNews.
Although I am no longer a part of Bluffton this accident still effects me. It's hard to explain it.
