So, I got hit by a car this morning. I’m lucky, the guy was slowing down for a red light so I’m not too badly hurt.
It was my fault. I was walking across the street listening to my iPod. A street I’ve crossed a thousand times. I barely even glanced one way before I crossed and I never saw him coming.
I wanted to write this letter to tell you that looking both ways before you cross the street is NOT JUST FOR KIDS. Don’t get complacent just because you “know the road” so well.
I was lucky, but you might not be.
Take this advice.
I mean it.
