I'm thankful to be alive, but I'm angry. There is absolutely NO GOOD REASON to be looking at that cell phone while driving. The girl who hit us told police she was on the phone but wasn't texting, but since she admitted she'd been looking down, we (and the police) were quite certain she was either texting, or perhaps on Facebook or Instagram. By the way, her car also had to be towed.
Please please please - spread this message around. I want to be alive. I want my son to have parents. And I don't want anyone else to have to go through this. PUT DOWN THE PHONE WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING. It can wait.
