I Just Saw This Horrible Video . . . Unfortunately It Rings True

So, it goes like this . . .

 

I was just going through my Facebook a couple minutes ago, and I got the link for a very graphic and all too real video.

The subject matter of the video is four teenage girls in a car in Great Britain. The problem is, is that this horrible situation can happen anywhere in the world.

This video has to do with texting while you’re driving.

Since I have two teenagers with cell phones texting all the time . . . well, I took notice.

It’s hard for me, and probably hard for you, to imagine the ramifications of such a seemingly benign action.

Texting.

Just punching letters and numbers on your telephone or PDA.

Simple, really. Too simple.

The beauty of texting is that it’s immediate communication without actually having to go through all of the niceties and “How do you do’s.”

<TEXT> Do you want to meet us at Starbucks? <SEND>

See how simple that was?

Really, texting is perfect for our world the way that we see it right now. And, the way that we communicate.

We want everything right now. Right this moment. No waiting. I can’t fricking wait, okay?

Well, after watching this video, you might agree that waiting until you pull over to the side of the road might be a better choice. It may be that your life and your friend’s lives depend on this patience level.

Maybe, if the Department of Motor Vehicles thinks that you’re old enough to have a license, then maybe you should be wise enough to pull over the car.

I would post the link, but YouTube made me sign in and verify my age prior to watching the video, however I think the people are shooting it all over the web right now. If you go under YouTube and search for “Graphic Crash, UK, Dangers of Texting While Driving.” (You can cut and paste this Video Title into the search bar of the YouTube site.)

I would give you the direct link, but since YouTube made me sign-in and verify my age, I feel a certain responsibility to my blog readers to maintain a certain level of ethics. You understand, I am sure.

Please watch it. Have your teanagers watch it. Have anyone watch it that texts.

Not only could it save their life . . . it could also save mine . . . and also yours.

As always,

Be well,

Belle
