Why Life is (Still) More Important Than Football


A while back I stepped out of bounds and brought you a story of a major tragedy that could happen to any one of us, at any time. It has now been close to four months since that horrific night – Friday, March 2nd, 2012. As many of us today celebrated Fathers’ Day, the fathers of Sarah Hammond, Rebekkah Blakkolb and Christina Goyett shed tears, seeing a missing half of their hearts gone. Although they are strong, deep down they still hurt, and will hurt until they are all together again. Seeing that white, bright smile from their daughters and giving them a big hug, telling them they love each other.

I am here today to give you a wonderful update on the two accident survivors, and members of Alpha Xi Delta sorority from Bowling Green State University, Angelica Mormile and Kayla Somoles. They have been working very hard to take that first step into the future after the accident, and remember the fun they had with their fallen sisters. Next school year will be very hard for all the girls and their friends. It will be a time of remembrance, love, and memories shared. The three new angels will always be watching down on their sisters, and all of us. Down below is a link to the video of the two survivors. This is Channel 13 ABC Toledo (Ohio) with the interview. Please watch:


I will have one more article about the accident and survivors and why that one word is so important to us all… Life. Please keep them in your prayers. God Bless all the girls and all of us.
