a classmate of mine, gabriella camejo, died yesterday evening after being hit by a car here in baltimore. another classmate who was with her was also hit, and he is in serious condition at the hospital. i knew gabriella freshman year, and she has been my classmate for four years. even though we weren't close, i was shocked to hear the news and very saddened. life is so short and can be gone in an instant. we all need to remember this everyday and make our lives as full and wonderful as they can be, concentrating on what is truly important: love, family, friends, and being as happy as possible and with the people we love while we are here on earth.
