It is so sad around my neighbourhood just now. On Wednesday a little girl who lives up the street from us was killed by a hit and run driver, and her mother was seriously injured. The car had been involved in a series of accidents in our area culminating in the driver racing up our street before mounting the pavement and hitting Olivia and her mother. Life is so fragile. A mother and child coming home from school, an ordinary everyday event that can never happen again. Too painful to bear.
