Don't speed

This happened in the early hours of this morning, Mr T was one of the first one the scene. When he got back, I asked "Is everyone ok". He bluntly stated "All dead". I thought he was kidding. He wasn't. He described the scene, and said if they weren't dead, they were all extremely messed up.

I can't stop thinking about how tragic this is - if only they weren't going so fast, they could have easily taken the corner.

Please, please, please - don't speed. It only takes a second for your life to be over, or severely changed forever. If you pray, please pray for the families who've lost someone today.

Melissa has thrown out a challenge, to sum up your week in 3 words, and post it on Sunday. I forgot to do it yesterday, so it's a good thing I'm a day ahead of most of my readers!!!

As a mother of 3 young boys, I always shudder when I hear these stories. There families must be devastated.

So sad, during the winter this year I have seen so many more accidents.
I am sure at least 50% could have been avoided with a little caution.

Good choice of words...

Such a sad, sad day for these families. Have prayed for those who lost loved ones and for your hubby too. Seeing something like that is life changing. Praying he will be able to deal with what he saw.
