If Only

Life is inherently unfair, as has been proven to me time and time again, most recently in the death of a dear friend who was only 49 years old. Tim Shannon was a most beloved and popular teacher at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, and a most beloved colleague and friend as well. As one of Tim's former students remarked to me the other night at the candlelight vigil, "Why Tim? Why couldn't one of the sucky teachers have died?"

If only life was fair, Jeremy, if only life was fair.
