As we all know, this is not always the case.
This post will not be about blogging safely. Instead, it is about my need to continually remind myself to be more cautious. Especially when it comes to the safety of my children.When we were in Chicago this summer, my Dad told me a horrible story about a colleague of his. This man's daughter got hit and killed by a hit and run driver who didn't stop for a stop sign. She died right in front of her mother and brother's eyes.
Her name was Maya. She was four years old. You can read about it here and here.
I pledge to myself, again, to be cautious with my children. To remember their fragility and to remember that my husband and I are their protectors.
Please remember to stop at all stop signs. Completely. Do it for your own children. Do it for all children.
Do it for Maya.
