And in a way, I've been there. I accidentally hit a dog nine years ago in Spain. The boys and I were driving south on a dirt road in the dark, and a cat and a dog ran in front of us. I slowed down but didn't quite stop, and the dog ran off, obviously in pain and crying. It was awful. It would be 50 times worse to hit a young boy, of course, but slamming any living thing is horrible. I'll never forget that moment.
