A message from Joyce: I just received an email from TJ asking me if I heard about the accident in Columbus this weekend that killed two high school students. The media is reporting that had they been wearing their seat belts they would likely still be alive. When I hear these stories my heart just breaks for the families. It also reminds me of the message that TJ has lived to tell. With winter weather and holiday parties upon us, I thought it would be a good time for a reminder.
T0 All of you: "too cool" FOOLS who are "too cool" for Seat belts
For all of you stupid fools who think you're bigger than a seat belt, bigger than a semi nailing you at 60 mph, and bigger than the life you possess.... Well this could have been you...and you could be DEAD. Next time you get into a car, look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if you think you're really too cool for your family, too cool for your friends, and too cool for the people you care about. If you think you are...you're not. On Sunday February 10th, 2008 at 7:24p.m. I was inches away from being dead, inches away from never seeing my family again, inches away from never seeing my friends again, inches away from never seeing YOU again. Instead, because I wear my seat belt, I am still breathing, still walking, still living my life. Next time you get into you're car, throw away your ego no one cares about and buckle up. Location: I-71
