A person's life can change drastically in a split second. I'm sure the guy who died had no thought of such a thing happening and neither did your friend's son. I think back to times in my own life when it could have went in a completely different direction had I not been blessed with some luck. Hadn't been for a friend of mine I would have shot a dude in North Carolina years ago. Stupid thing that got out of control and could have resulted in a different life for both me and the other guy.
