RIP Speedy Peterson

I hope I never know how bad it gets where someone is left with no other option than to take his own life. It seems like such a waste.

God Speed!

Seriously. He had it bad though -

* Sister killed by a drunk driver when he was a kid
* Sexually abused
* Alcohol and depression, repeatedly thru life
* Friend kills himself, in front of him while he watches
* He gets arrested, last week for driving under the influence
* Then kills himself with a gun

And that's how it happens. Life is fragile eh?

I did watch him win Nat's at Killington in 2006 - dude was awesome!
