Losing Kyle

He is not a family member nor a relative.

But losing him makes me grieve.

Kyle was my student.

Early this morning, I heard from the radio about his death. He was only 16. He was young, vibrant and would have been the first in his family to complete his high school education. He had lots of potential. He is kind, brave, smart and loving. His teachers love him. He is an individual who would-have-been, who could-have-been and who should-have-been.

I feel for his soul, his family and his shattered future – no, gone future.

I know he is gone, but his memories and his love will always remain in the hearts of the people whom he had touched.

I just wish he will fulfill his dreams, as he goes to heaven.

Kyle, you will be missed!
