Story behind the sweater

OK.. so I stated I'd tell the story behind the sweater.

In April of 2007, one of my twins' classmates was tragically killed. This was THE kid in school who everybody wanted to be friend with. He was the cool kid, the nice kid, the athlete, the friend to all. But, he was a kid...He was riding his bike in the driveway w/his friend and overshot the ramp, and accidentally went into the street. Meanwhile, an impatient driver was passing another vehicle and was in the opposite lane, and struck the boy. It was learned later that the man was driving 82MPH.!!.Body armor isn't going to protect anybody from that..

In death, this child brought together my community like I've never seen in real life. They erected a skatepark in his memory in my town, and it was such a great celebration of his life..

and NOW, almost 18 months later, his Mother, will be giving birth to another boy. This sweater is for that little guy, who will always have a big brother watching down over him.

So, it's blocking as I write this, and I'm going to purchase some leather buttons today.
Have a great week.
