Twitter and Facebook, not to mention texts and cell phones were alive with the inconvenience created by this situation. I confess, I was among those verbalizing my frustration. It was a wall of vitriol.
Only a handful of people bothered to ask about what was going on upon the interstate, just a couple of miles removed. While we were griping and moaning, two persons--a truck driver and the driver of the SUV that had crossed the median and hit the trucker head-on--died.
We don't know yet what caused the driver to cross into the northbound traffic. Some have suggesyed a high speed that caused the SUV to go out of control. It doesn't matter. Now to people are dead. At least two families are in shock and grieving of this sudden death.
Thousands of us were inconvenienced.
In our self-centered world, I suspect the latter fact is considered the greater sin. I for one, have asked God's forgiveness for my pique and offered a prayer of condolence for the dead. To not do this latter would have been the greater sin.
