Don’t feed urge…driving and texting…wrong

    How true, a death posted in the paper a few days ago because of this. A second of bad judgement and they are gone. How futile!

    Nicely done!! Tough form but you nailed it!! It's so true, texting and driving does kill people! I wish the phone wouldn't work if the car is on, except maybe the voicemail. But this may never be true!! Great work!!
