Thursday - We Can Do This


It is the start of the long Easter weekend today, well I am guessing for most people it is when school closes (public schools and Chad's school) from 12 on wards. You would think we would all be happy that we have a long weekend, but with long weekends, comes stress; short fuses and our roads turn into war zones. This morning I was late as it is, with Sheila being on leave I have to organize the dogs, make sure Garfield is inside and and and....., well it took me 15 minutes to get to work - I live less than a kilometer away. (Yes I should walk - I don't). There was a collision - I say the word collision, because the definition of accident is something unexpected, not on purpose; you never meant to do it. I bet my bottom dollar this collision involved talking/messaging/reading a mobile device. A straight road and you smash into a car from behind at such force that the front of your car and the back of the other car is practically merged into one. Oh and in a 60km zone - speed + mobile device almost guarantees road carnage. I always do a bit more than shake my head when I see photos on Social Networks that someone has taken of somebody else driving recklessly and the person taking the photo s driving - Um seriously is that not an offence - a "minor" traffic offence that kills. If you are travelling, drive carefully and arrive a bit later but rather late than never. I read this the other day on twitter "If you knew you were driving to your death would you drive fast to get there quicker" I can't remember the exact words but it was something to that effect. On a more positive note, here is some inspiration to get through our Thursday.
