God Bless Khiva Shriners

Khiva Shriners help injured Vega teen: After a tragic accident on the football field, one Vega High School student, Luis Morales, remains unable to walk -- paralyzed from the waist down.
When I wrote how I felt about letting our children play a game requiring an ambulance on the edge of the field two posts ago I did not know about this child's injury.  Vega is a little wide spot in the road about half an hour away from me down Route 66. Small little 1 sq mile town, maybe 250 families.  Their boys play ball. Of course this tragedy is a horrible life changing accident for Mr. Morales and his family, but it will be felt by every single person in this town.    According to there are 300,000 to 1,215,000 high-school football injuries each year in the United States. I remain the mean ole mom ......and God Bless every Shriner and for their hospitals.
