This is a reblog from over at The lover, the lunatic, & the poet.
Warning: Post contains a fairly graphic video which I found hard to watch. Please do not watch if you have a sensitivity to blood or even fake blood.
I want you to watch this video. It is important.
This started out as a reblog from over at The lover, the lunatic, & the poet.
But Jessica’s story wasn’t my story, even though the message is the same. Check her post out and hear what she has to say, she has a lot of great information. We have to teach our kids how important it is to pay full attention while driving, and the adults.
Put it down, save a life is a program run by the Mansfield Independent School district here locally. AT&T has the It can wait movement/app. The I-phone has the Do not Disturb button, that silences any texts or phone calls so not to disturb the driver. All of these great aids, but what good does it do you or anyone if you ignore the message.
There is nothing so important that it can’t wait.
If you are that hungry, be five minutes late and eat before or after the drive.
You are beautiful without your make-up on, don’t put it on sitting in traffic.
If you didn’t have time to shave, go to work hairy.
If you are lost, pull over and read that map.
That phone call can be missed, call them back later.
If the light is yellow, don’t speed up to “make it”.
That text wasn’t that important.
Is that drink worth it?
So think twice before you get behind that wheel if it can’t wait. It might not be your life that you injure/kill or your child, but it could be someone else’s.
Just remember, even if you are lucky enough to walk away, that is not always the case for everyone. And I don’t know about you, but the lives around me are more important than whatever IT is.
These are my pictures; I chose not to include any of the driver’s side that was actually hit by the other car. The person never saw me. Battered and broken, I was a lucky one- I was able to crawl away. Had my daughter been with me, she might not have been so lucky because her seat is directly behind mine.
So please, slow down, pay attention and drive safely.
