I am not sure if you can read the comments or not, but it’s pointless to start blaming. I don’t know, maybe it’s the years of therapy where I have learned “there’s no use crying when the milk is already spilled.” It’s a tragedy, I don’t care whether people liked him or not, despite his decision it’s sad. Maybe, again, this is years of watching people do reckless things that I can sympathize with how much trouble they are in and how much it hurts because we can see them drowning and despite all the life jackets, rafts, tubes, whatever, and them fighting with you because they still want to continue to drown. It’s pointless to point at friends, who knows, maybe they did try to stop him and he wanted to continue anyway. Even if they didn’t, I’m sure they’re feeling pretty crappy and guilty already, they don’t need more people blaming them when their self-blame is already monumental. Instead of blaming, we should mourn Ryan and Zach’s loss and work together on trying to prevent another accident like this from happening. We should celebrate their lives and work towards what they wanted done (Ryan had a fund for homeless children I believe, we could continue his fund) and Zach was a veteran.
West Boro Baptist Church was supposed to show up at this funeral. I remember they tried to do that at the McAndrew service and I thank God they didn’t show up. I thank God for not showing up at this funeral as well. I don’t understand why these people want to do something like this. What do they get out of it? I don’t think it would make God or Jesus proud, in fact I think it makes them upset.
I told one of the guests that posted about Ryan Dunn’s death (he put down, “friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive”) that we’ll be having a shot (Jagermeister, vodka, Sprite or Coca Cola) in his honor and in Clarence Clemons honor.
Okay, break time is over, back to work. If I have anything to post after work at the library tonight (get home 8:30) I’ll post. I probably won’t, I want to start making the jello shots tonight.
