Travolta Family Responds to Tragedy

I’m very impressed with the state of mind of John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, upon the tragic and unexpected death of their 16-year-old son, Jett. Rather than looking for someone or something to blame for his death, they posted this statement on John’s website: “Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered. We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives.”

This is such a positive response to what many would perceive as a negative situation. It’s not that the Travolta’s won’t grieve, as they should. It’s the gratitude they are able to feel, no matter the circumstances. I commend them both.
