Why are so many people I went to school with dead already?

Don’t be idiots people, they say the fall can kill you for a reason. Let’s learn from others’ mistakes. I’m tired of hearing about people I went to school with dying. We’re a bit too young to be reading about each other in the obituaries. Now I’m gonna take some time and remember Travis.

  1. In case you’ve not been given the full story, Travis did not die from the jump. He didn’t break anything, and there was no trauma of any kind. Travis had epilepsy, and the cause of death was a seizure induced by the adrenaline rush and the change in temperature from jumping into the cold water. He had the seizure while swimming back to shore. He could have very easily have had a seizure at the wheel of a car, or while climbing some stairs. He died the way he lived, living life to the fullest.

  3. I’m actually thankful for him correcting the misinformation as well. Beginning to feel like an attack at me… really this just goes to show how awful the Lynchburg News and Advance is at reporting the news. I recommend no one ever read it.
