Please lift up the vehicles’ drivers, students and their families, police investigators and school officials to the Lord, asking for healing (physically and emotionally), a proper investigation and corrective action, and wisdom for all of the school officials.  Regardless of fault, it’s a blessing that this situation wasn’t even worse.
