Tribute to Eve Carson

From the song "Nobody's Hero" by Rush

I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family
All their lives were shattered in a nightmare of brutality
They try to carry on, try to bear the agony
Try to hold some faith in the goodness of humanity
As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that she was gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But she's nobody's hero
Is the voice of reason against the howling mob
Hero...is the pride of purpose
In the unrewarding job
Hero...not the champion player
Who plays the perfect game
Hero...not the glamour boy
Who loves to sell his name
Everybody's buying
Nobody's hero

WOW, that song makes me think of how screwed up we all are, about what we think is important, this girl didn't play on the Tar Heels basketball team, but she was every bit the person and student that Tyler Hansbrough is but with none of the notoriety. Am I knocking Tyler for being a basketball player? No, far from it, I'm just saying there are some serious problems with putting athletes above everything else, and we do it all the time.

Yep, it's so teribble to see some body's life end just like that, and for no reason. I wish her family and friends the best.

She was so young, and being the student body president of a major college must mean you have your life set up in front of you, but some sick son of a ***** ruined that.

Tribute to Eve Carson

How tragic her life was cut so short. She seemed to emit life. I did not know her either.

And they say the brightest light is always put out too soon.
