[personal] Sights that chill a parent's heart

the_child is home from the Shakespeare festival. (More about that anon.) We went out to rent a video, the long promised first Harry Potter movie. On the way back, as she was delivering a critique of the production of Romeo and Juliet, we were passed by a police cruiser running full tilt boogie. A couple of blocks later there was a car in the ditch by the side of the road, where the cruiser had stopped. Then I saw a child's bicycle smashed against the curb.

the_child wasn't looking in the right direction, so she missed that last detail, but the whole business made me feel very ill. I can only hope and pray things are ok there. I will check the news cycle tomorrow and see.
