This boy's life isn't worthless nor is it any less important than the woman who passed or her surviving grandson. Everyone is young once and makes mistakes, but for most of us it doesn't harm anyone other than ourselves. An accident happened that could have been anyone operating a vehicle, an accident, nothing more. It wasn't like the boy purposely and maliciously set out to hurt someone. He made a mistake that will hang over him for the remainder of his life and that will be a heavy burden to carry. Nothing that can be done will bring back the woman or change the past and I would hope that would be remembered. Revenge does not heal anything and forgiveness should be remember when a life so young and still blooming is involved. He will serve his punishment handed down by the law and yet, nothing will be harder than the realization of what has happened, which he will repent for the rest of his life. To say that his life means nothing now because of one mistake is horrific and ignorant.

worthless life? You should be ashamed of yourself for calling a kid or in fact anyone that. 50 years? drug dealers, repeat offenders, drunk drivers and others who INTEND on harming or killing someone dont get that stiff of a sentence. Sure hope you NEVER do ANYTHING wrong. ever.
