True love waits


I watched the “We Are Manheim” video again last night, and it hit me: driving a car is serious, even though they were wearing seat belts, they weren’t saved. All four died, and it’s a tragic thing. Imagine what Caleb Walton is going through. He said in the We Are Manheim video that he could’ve stopped it, but he didn’t. He’s living with that feeling inside of him forever. I couldn’t imagine looking into the parent’s eyes and saying “I was there, I was a part of it, but I didn’t stop it.” I’d feel really bad inside. Heck, I felt horrible just watching the video. Sure, I watched it twice, once in school and once at home. Should I have? Yeah, because it made me realize that I can’t goof around when I’ve got passengers in the car, and while driving the car by myself. I can’t. It’s not safe. It’s easy for me to say now, even though I don’t have my license, that I’m gonna be a cautious and safe driver. It’s easy to say, but I know, and can see myself, that when the time comes, I’m not gonna be that cautious and safe driver I once told myself I’m gonna be. I know that’s not a good thing to think, but it’s true. How many of us look at our parents and say, I’m gonna be a safe driver.. don’t worry. But that time comes, and we aren’t. We’re goofing off while at red lights, stop signs, etc. we’re constantly getting distracted while driving. On the highway, switching lanes all the time when it isn’t necessary. All those things, lead to car crashes, and is playing a game of who can win, the road and the car, or the person driving the car and it’s passengers? And most of the time, the road and car win.
