Just this morning there was a terrible accident outside, at our corner. Two young men on a motorcycle were thrown a huge distance; and at least one died.
I do not know if alcohol or drugs were involved by either of the parties, or cell phone use, or not. But I want to take this opportunity to remind all of the dangers of all three. Most people today know well about alcohol and driving not being a good mix.
But what people don't realize is that using a cellular phone, even HANDS-FREE is JUST AS DANGEROUS!. (click on link)
Yes, death comes of so sudden at times. We shudder at the realization of our frailty.
I am simply so caught up in this, and can think of little else. I know that this will pass for me, I will soon be back to "normal life".
As I always say: "All we have power over is what WE do and how WE act." Nothing else.....
