Jamie Nash re-tells her story of surviving an accident she was in because she was texting and driving. The actual audio of her rescue from the police officer's radio is chilling. However, her words are inspiring.

Wake up Texas! The bus driver that slammed into stalled traffic is on PAID administrative leave while his victim is still recovering in the hospital. We are BEYOND the need for legislation to hold drivers accountable whose distraction driving leads to injury and death!

As I have aged, my scope has widened. Now with each holiday that comes, I pray and pray and pray that the news will not have a tragedy to report each holiday weekend. Fourth of July is a big one for me. It seems to never fail that a life is tragically lost on Lake Lewisville, yet people continue to flock to the water as if a siren calls them to it.
I was thinking this morning, that I have spent the better part of a couple of decades praying for tragedies to take a holiday like the rest of us...like there is some gang of trouble makers going out to wreck havoc for their you-know-whats and giggles.
We are the havoc! Our choices are no one's but our own. If you choose to drink and drive, you choose to take your own life and/or the lives of others. If you choose to let your cellular device distract you from driving your automobile safely, you choose to take your own life and/or the lives of others. Every time you choose to make an unwise decision, you choose to risk this being your last celebration. Sometimes, you are making a choice for someone else.
Make wise choices everyday. Live to celebrate all life has to give. Be well and be safe, friends. Happy 4th of July.
