Aaron's Story ~ Pause for Thanks..

I noticed the following posting on Aaron's page shortly after posting, and thought I'd share it also for anyone who might be interested..  

Deepest thanks to everyone who is responding to the accident last night and the post this morning. Your prayers and well wishes are gratefully received.

We are pulling together as a family and your support means so much to us.

The post was written to explain the situation to family, friends and the good folks who read these updates. I was getting so many messages and calls, I couldn't face the thought of repeating the story dozens of times. I did not expect it to be spread as far as it did.

Please use this opportunity to take good action in your community.

I won't be writing again until things have cooled down.

To the media, I appreciate your offers of an interview but at this point we are coming together as a family and our focus is on healing, I am sure you understand.

To all the many medical and law enforcement heroes, thank you. You have all been nothing short of amazing and our family thanks you. Words will never be enough.

To the drivers, be at peace. We all make mistakes. Sometimes small things turn into big things in the blink of an eye. There are consequences, but there shouldn't be demonization. Use this moment and all moments after to strengthen your community. There will be a price to be paid, just make sure it's worth it. Again, none of us will ever live a faultless life.

Thank you again.

Take care of your families and fix any rifts as soon as you can. Express love as often as you can. Appreciate every moment you have.

Thank you.
