The Last Text Message

It is bad enough that I have anxiety attacks at the thought of my daughters driving alone but throw in factors like drunk driving and texting and I just want to keep them at home safe and sound. I know that’s unrealistic though, as every parent of teenagers can tell you. We talk and we talk about the risks, the dangers, then we close our eyes and pray like mad that all the talks have somehow sunk in.

I ran across this video on facebook, courtesy of Waking Circle with this notation:

PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO WAS PRODUCED BY AT&T AND MADE AVAILABLE ON OUR SITE AS A PUBLIC SERVICE. PLEASE CONTACT AT&T FOR QUESTIONS RELATED TO THIS VIDEO. THANK YOU.

this is not easy to watch, but watch it. it will make you think before you start texting while driving. it will make you think before you get in a car with someone who is texting and driving. and, i hope – it will make you STOP texting with someone that you know is behind the wheel.

please – share this with every parent you know, and with every “text addict” you know.

this video was produced in march, 2010 by AT&T.

Share this video with everyone you know. It’s not only the kids who need reminding, even adults who should know better have been caught texting while driving. No phone call or text message can be so important that it can’t wait until you’ve stopped the car.

HoneyB of The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch said: I did workout 5 days a week at the gym until my injury-now I’m anxiously waiting until I can go back! I also try to eat healthy!
