WoW. I never usually post two..

WoW. I never usually post two entries in one day but......I stayed in bed 'til past 6 PM because of this stinking cold I'm coming down with. Probably would have layed there longer had I not heard my mom yell out "WHAT??" Immediately I knew something was wrong. Within a few seconds I made out enough of her mumbled words to realize nothing was wrong with our family or anyone we love. But the news was still shocking. Ever since I was a little kid I always heard this certain guys name around the house. He was someone to look up to and envy...of course, being the rebel that I am, I went against this guy for a little while. When all my family loves a certain person or thing, you can guarantee that I will backlash. But right now I feel such a huge loss. When I turned on the t.v. it was headlining CNN news. Today at a few minutes before 5 PM, Dale Earnhardt was pronounced dead after a car crash at the Daytona 500 race. My brother Mark has been a diehard Earnhardt fan ever since I can remember. If a race is on tv, he's there parked on the couch watching every single minute. I'm not a big race fan. But I know who's who. And I know that losing Earnhardt is a devestating thing that is effecting thousands upon thousands of people this very second. I know this because my brother is being crushed by it. No, not to the point of how it would be to lose a close family member. But close enough. Anyways, I'm going to sign off now before I start streaming off into other subjects. This journal entry deserves to be just for Dale Earnhardt. Sort of my own little personal private tribute to the Intimidator. We will miss you Dale. In our hearts, on our tv screens, on the race tracks...................*03*......*03*.....*03*......
