What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... Today is Matt Burkett's 23rd birthday and we celebrated with many of his family and friends tonight at a candle-lit vigil. It is so comforting to be with others who share the same sorrow we are experiencing. There were many of his CCHS class and team mates in attendance. What an amazing tribute to a young man whose sweet, quiet spirit touched so many, in so many different ways. His memory will forever be a part of the dear family he leaves behind.
The familiar quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet has resounded in my head all day. "Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest." -Hamlet, Act V
