Let me tell you a story.     A very close family friend was killed in a motorcycle accident two weeks ago.  He was  51 years old.  He was buried Monday this week.   Lance was on a paved road on his bike, wearing his helmet.  He had stopped at a red light.  He was the second vehicle at the light.  A third car came up behind him, rear ended him and forced him into the back end of the SUV in front of him.  He was killed instantly.   The woman who hit him, is 31 years old.  She was going at least 55 MPH in a 25 MPH zone and was on her cell phone.  The police are still investigating the accident, but one of the officers says she will most likely be charged with vehicular homicide at least.  

There was absolutely no reason for Lance to be killed.   Whatever that woman was doing on her cell phone could not possibly  have been more important than taking someone's life.  I am sure this accident will have a long term effect on her and her family.  I know our family will remember this forever.   Please, do not use your cell phone and drive.  Pull over or wait until you get someplace where you can safely answer your phone.
