He ran faster than a speeding bullet. He qualified for state twice in the California track and field championships. And he always found a way into the end zone when he played alongside my oldest son on Ramona's football team. But he couldn't outrun death, an opponent not even the best athletes can beat. Ryan Morgan lost his life in a motorcycle accident yesterday. He was a hometown hero for all three of my children and attended preschool with our son. There is a great void in Ramona today as the community learns of his passing.
For those who don't know Ryan, here is a link. Please pray for his family and for all who are grieving his loss. May his soul rest in peace.
