There Are No Words Sufficient

I’m good with words – I’m a writer. But I have no words to tell the story of Marine Lance Cpl. Patrick J. Coughlin who died Friday, June 19.

The young man recently returned from serving a tour in Iraq.

What I can say is it is sometimes impossible to make sense of events in the world.

The Marine died in a tragic accident in a quarry in Quincy with a few of his friends.

If only I had words that would explain the story. If only there was something that could be said to comfort his family.

Sometimes nothing can help. This is one of those times.
