This picture reminds me of when 2 of 7 students from Strathcona Tweetsmeer School in Calgary died in an avalance in February while on a field trip. I knew them as friends and my family knew them as my friends. The day that they died, I went up to my room and looked at all of the funeral books and I saw the ages 70, 80,90... and 15 seems like a really small age. I will never forget their smiling faces still looking at me. I wonder why god would take such young kids instead of people who have had a long life. Now i finally realize that there is a better place for seven teenagers. Ill miss you guys. K.M
