In the midst of grief and shock we can stand mystified questioning just what any one of us can do to make a difference and keep kids alive? In the wake of tragic deaths, we can also ask, "What can I do that would make a difference each day to keep kids of all ages alive?"
A simple answer is to do what is in our power to do to keep ourselves and others alive. Simple answers are not always so easy to live out though. An example would be to simply focus on our driving behaviors. Can we manage to go through a day by not speeding, stopping correctly at all stop signs and signals, not tailgate, not engage in any form of distractions that take our focus off the task at hand - driving, make sure everyone is buckled up, and never drink and drive?
If we can do these simple, but necessary, actions each day, we each will have done something meaningful, and do-able, to keep ourselves and others alive.
The question then becomes not only "can we do it," but, "will we do it?"
The answer lies in your decision behind the wheel today.
