On Wednesday morning, Karah Conroy, a sophomore at Voorhees High School, and her brother Trey got into a car accident on Route 31, Trey left unharmed. That morning, the school wondered, Where’s Karah? Little did they know that she had been severely injured in the accident. She was airlifted to a nearby hospital. She was diognosed with severe brain trauma and was in a comma. As soon as all the high schoolers got out of school, they heard the news. Everyone was devastated, knowing Karah or not. Thursday, everyone wore orange in support to Karah’s fight, orange because it meant represented good health, energy vitality, and courage. The whole high school wore orange, and took a photo of everyone in the gym. They called this the “Orange-out.” They planned to wear green to school on Friday, because green was Karah’s favorite color. But Thursday night, Karah passed away. Statuses popped up on facebook praying for her, telling her to rest in peace. I didn’t personally know Karah, but I wore orange to school on Thursday, and I am proud to wear green today. I also cried with my mom, knowing another innocent teenager had been killed in a car crash. She was so young and had a great life in front of her. According to what I heard, she was an all around amazing person, one of the nicest people you would meet. Rest easy, baby. You’ll never be forgotten, beautiful. <3
