I had quite an awakening this week as I found myself stopped at a green light in front of Harding School.
I didn't know why I stopped. Something just made me. I looked up, saw the green light and started to move. At that time, I noticed the panic on a little face as he just passed my vehicle, he looked up and noticed he did not have the right of way. I did not honk the horn or anything; he looked scared enough. Following that, I looked up and thanked God for having me stop during a green light.
The feeling that I almost hit a child is still with me. And I am thankful of it, a constant reminder to slow down and be aware. Kids and parents can not hear it enough times to BE CAREFUL when crossing. Parents, BE CAREFUL when driving. This is not a question of who has the right of way, but rather saving a life!
Please remind yourself and others about crossing with caution; driving with care and to all to always be patient and take our time. Lives are at stake and each one of us has only one!!
Thank you very much.
