  1. Prayers for that young boy’s recovery. So traumatic.

    Remember. Look left, look right. Repeat as needed.

    Pedestrians and bicyclists must remember to not ever rely on motorists to yield or watch out for them. They don’t. Too many distractions. Majority of drivers do not drive politely, or respectful, of walking or biking folks. Reality.
