What else is around the corner
What will come next
from talking on the cell
to writing a text
Shouldn’t we, as adults,
be good role models
How is it possible
if we’re acting like rebels
in different shapes
but taking eyes off the road
may not lead to escapes
So, if you can’t refrain
for your own safety’s sake
then do it for your neighbor
in the surrounding lanes

My son is in Leadership (Student Council) at his high school,
and recently they conducted a week long event,
conveying the dangers of texting and driving.
They had a guest speaker who had lost his high school daughter
because she texted while driving on the freeway.
Although I don’t text and drive, this alone
is enough to scare me. Whether we’re texting
or reading a text, we create a dangerous situation by doing so.
I thought I would help pass this very important message along.
