Today there was a big fight at my school during recess.
A boy named Jai was accidentally hit and fell backwards, hitting his head on a wall.
He stopped breathing and started convulsing.
He was intubated and rushed to hospital where he remained in critical condition for most of the afternoon.
He just died.

The fight was over a picnic table.

I really have no words right  now.
I didn't  know him. Didn't even know he existed until after the fight.

I saw him laying on the ground right before they started doing CPR.
He was foaming at the mouth and he was so tiny, so vulnerable.

I can't possibly imagine what his family is going through at the moment.
I thought we lived in a small, middle-of-nowhere town because things like this don't happen here.

Tonight, for the first time in years, I prayed.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
