Seconds can change a life. I was driving home from kickboxing today, and right before my eyes I witnessed a car slamming into a motorcycle rider. The crunch. The crash. Then the scene. In those seconds lives were changed. The car pulled out right in front of the motorcycle. Probably didn’t even see him. Or perhaps the driver of the car was texting. Tired. Talking on his cell phone. Or just not paying attention. Seconds. And lives are changed.
Both my brothers ride motorcycles. Bo is a big biker, as you probably know. I have a lot of friends who ride motorcycles. Seeing this accident, scared me. It affected me to the point that I couldn’t stop crying.
Seconds can change lives.
I write this because witnessing this accident really had a profound affect on me today. It made me think of how short and precious life is. That one might worry about their job. What they are cooking for dinner. Where they need to get their kids off too. A fight they had with a friend.
Life is precious. And Seconds can change lives.
I am praying for all involved in the accident. That the biker is okay. That the driver is okay. And it made me realize, that I too…all too often become distracted when driving. That could’ve been me in the car that hit that biker. It could be any of us.
Seconds can change lives.
Let’s all watch out for bikers (and everyone!) on the roads!
Cornbread, Lisa and Mac show Judi the Ropes on St. Louis Cardinals OPENING DAY! Check out the video here:
Inspired. useful. Connected. Hopeful. Grateful.
Five GREAT reasons why it feels so good to give back. I had a great weekend which included being an Honorary Chairman along side Fox 2 News Anchor Tom O’neal at the 14th annual Cancer Support Community Walk at Creve Coeur Lake.
We got extremely lucky with the weather that morning. Especially considering what went down in St. Louis that early evening with the horrific Thunderstorm and Hail Storm. (I hope you were okay!)
What touched me the most, besides all of the amazing stories from cancer survivors and family members of those no longer with us because of cancer, was when I was approached several times in the day with WIL-ers saying they heard my message about the walk, and were inspired to come out, volunteer and DO SOMETHING!
Well, according to this article, doing good is REALLY good for YOU! I agree! And I hope you will join Cornbread, Mac and I on Team Breadhead for a race for the cure downtown on June 23rd! Here is the article: http://www.positivelypresent.com/2011/10/5-ways-to-feel-good-by-doing-good.html that proves my point!
And you can sign up RIGHT NOW to join Team Breadhead and be on your own journey to doing good right here: http://www.wil92.com/category/teambreadhead2012
Beautiful touching email from listener Mike Ward about what the Pledge of Allegiance is really all about. And then he sent a great Youtube video of Red Skelton with a beautiful explanation! Here is some of Mike’s letter along with the youtube video he sent!
“At some point in my morning journey to work, I get the privilege of listening to the school kids citing the Pledge of Allegiance, occasionally even from our local elementary school McKelvey. So thank you for posting that each morning. But somehow, I would love to inform some of the teachers the purpose of our Pledge.
I am a U.S. Army Veteran of more than 24 years of military service, to include only one tour of duty in Iraq over 12 months “boot’s-on-ground” in 2004-2005. I turned 48 in Iraq and decided it was a younger mans mission. During my service, I was also on orders as a Department of the Army Honor Guard member. Not to be confused with the honorable soldiers walking the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, but I did have the career highlight privilege of training with them for 1 week in Washington D.C. So my comment is based on experience, training, education and emotion.
1. While any reason is a good reason to teach our children to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the least important is “In honor of our soldiers fighting for our freedoms.” Unfortunately, I’ve heard that reason repeated on several occasions. No soldier ever fights so that he/she can be honored. We fight honorably so that others, our children, can have and maintain the freedoms we cherish. Cards, letters, girl scout cookies, welcome home ceremonies …and prayer honor the troops that serve. The Pledge is just as it states. It’s a pledge, a promise to uphold, a character, a guide to live by. I’m sure you’ve heard it, but Red Skelton’s explanation of the Pledge of Allegiance still brings tears to my eyes but he explains it perfectly. (Link enclosed).
I really wish the kids and their teachers understood WHY they learn the Pledge and what it should mean to them. It shouldn’t be to honor soldiers. Promising to live a life that honors and respects our country and the freedoms it offers is what it means. They are also promising to keep those freedoms for future generations, a lesson that should be taught to many of our political representatives I might add.”
Thank you Mike for the humble words you sent as well as the link to this video!
We’ve got a picture here of a woman who has the MOST BEAUTIFUL FACE in the world . . . mathematically, anyway.
–She’s 18-year-old Florence Colgate of Kent, England, and she’s a blonde-haired, blue-eyed student who works at a stand that sells French fries. And she was picked from more than 8,000 candidates in a contest to find the PERFECT FACE. Here’s why she was chosen . . .
–Her face is almost perfectly symmetrical, which is a sign of beauty.
–The space between her pupils is just under half of the width of her face, which is supposed to be the perfect scientific ratio for attractiveness.
–And the distance between her eyes and mouth is about a third of the measurement from her hairline to her chin . . . again, that’s supposedly the ideal ratio for a beautiful face.
–And looking at her photo, she IS beautiful . . . especially considering she’s not wearing much makeup and she’s had no work done. But does she have the most beautiful face in the world? Not really.
So, my son Leo is really into being an outdoorsman. He doesn’t like to use the store bought rod and reel his Grandparents got him for fishing. He makes his own Reel using a broken tree branch, some wire he found on the ground, and a hook he made out of twigs.
Doesn’t matter the tools, as you can see from the video! A good fisherman, is a good Fisherman! We were literally out by that lake for all of ten minutes at the most when he caught this Cat Fish! GO LEO!
Check out the video I took from my iPhone!
