Never take a moment for granted


Holy!

It’s true though. We all think, “just one peek,” and we look to see what the email was or who texted us.

We all think, ‘sending one little letter won’t hurt anybody,’ and we send that ‘k’ or ‘?’.

We all think, “damn! I hope that’s *** calling,” then we pick the phone up in our hands and carry on an animated conversation with whoever.

We all reach to change the song on the radio or mp3 Player/iPod.

We all reach over to adjust the GPS volume or input the address

Where I live, any of the above, and more, is illegal and could net you a minimum $490 dollar fine for first offense distracted driving plus 3 demerit points (if you settle out of court. $1000 if you go to court) and go as high as 10 years in federal penitentiary for causing bodily harm or 14 years for actually killing someone with your vehicle.

It’s not worth it people, it’s really not. My life, your life, everybody’s life is worth shutting your phone off, putting it in Airplane mode, turning off the ringer, not fiddling with the radio knob and a million other things we do while we’re driving that we shouldn’t.

It certainly wasn’t worth that 11 year old girl’s life!

Please, think twice about talking/texting/whatever and driving!


This isn’t a new chapter, I apologize. It’s more of a heads up and reminder.  I may be missing for awhile. Though I hope I still have the desire to keep writing and am able to come…

About tj6james6

I write fanfiction for Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood. I pre-read/edit/beta others stories and I am attempting to get myself out of a rut and back into life rather than sitting here contemplating a blank page.
