Noah Ortiz and four siblings died tragically this morning. No rhyme, no reason. This is not fair to Noah and his family. I'm pissed. He was a brave young man trying to save his family. He was on his way with his brother Cowboys to State Football playoffs. He was on his way, period. Athletic, good student, good son and brother, led by example, and a friend to all. Dammit. This is Thanksgiving week.
God's will? I doubt it; but, I do NOT doubt God welcomed Noah with his brothers and sisters. His place for them is better than can be imagined. Still, it hurts. I cannot comprehend the burden on his parents.
It is small solace Noah's been instrumental in the Cowboys football season. Football seems so small right now, yet I know that is not what Noah would want. The big solace is how Noah conducted himself, on AND off the field.
Team, family and friends need to remember Noah and his brothers and sisters and pray for his mother.
Remember Noah. Honor his memory. Think of the good. Be thankful you knew him for his short time on earth.
I don't know what to do right now, other than give a gallery of images of Noah from his last game on earth. Save, download and share any or all. Do it for Noah.
