Pushing Back the Darkness

In a very moving post, former Greensboro resident and blogger The Dawn Treader reflects on the life of Clete Childs, who died a little over a week ago following a head-on collision with a drunk driver. The Dawn Treader notes how distinctive Clete's funeral was, writing ... "Clete, at age sixteen, had thought through his funeral quite carefully. He expressed his wishes clearly to his parents and his friends." (Hat tip: Joe Guarino)

On Monday night, Clete's school, Caldwell Academy, will honor him with a memorial service in the gym, where 24 hours later his basketball teammates will play their first home game of the season.
