A lesson for young and old.

It was so painful for all of us to hear and read about, recently, of the tragic loss of that lovely young girl in the traffic accident. It made me think of a practical lesson my mom taught us. When you have to cross the street: 1. Stop. 2. Look left. 3. Look right before you stop into the street.

Please, parents and teachers, practice this with your children until it is imprinted in their little brain computer. It lasts a whole lifetime.

With my condolences to the family.
