Just as the words "Oh no honey, don't go making a mess" were about to roll off my tongue, I remembered where I was suppose to be... running miles for Meg, the runner who was killed this past week by a drunk driver. What Meg wouldn't give to be making muffins with her three children today! So with a smile, I rolled out of bed and gave my daughter a hug.
And we made muffins...
|I saw somewhere online that Meg's favorite color was blue,|
so I wore my new blue hoodie for her today.
It's easy to get angry when hearing these stories of pedestrians being plowed down by unattentive drivers of motor vehicles. (Meg wasn't the only one this week.) Whether it's drunk driving or texting, it is completely avoidable. These are not accidents; these deaths are the result of careless decisions.
Please please please as you go forth with your day... slow it down; one thing at a time. When you're driving, put that phone away and focus on the task at hand. It goes without saying (or does it?), don't drive after drinking alcohol. Be safe and watch out for one another, so we can all keep moving forward, together.
Make the pledge today...
I WILL NOT DRIVE DISTRACTED OR IMPAIRED.
