It was a regular day at school for me really, wasn’t much going on until third period that day. I was in band, we had a substitute so we were working on whatever the teacher left us to do, when suddenly the substitute stopped us in what we were doing. She began to tear up and cry as she was reading about a wreck that had happened that morning on her phone. We listened carefully and were shocked at what had happened, a well known guy I went to middle school with had died in an accident, and his sister seriously injured. This guy was Braden Rock, a former pit member of the Heritage High School Marching band and Heritage High School. I’m sure those of you reading this remember this horrible occasion. That whole day was sluggish and depressing for many,I thought it was just a nightmare the whole time, but I never woke up. My heart goes out to the family and those who cared for Braden, he truly was a bright heart in this world and I hope he is resting well.
