No way and I wished other people wouldn't do it either.

There is nothing I have to say so badly that I need to text and drive. That's a big no-no.

Psalms 34:7 - Delight your self in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Before you ask God for Anything, remember to first thank him for Everything

Call me OLD SKOOL, I don't text at all. Maybe I'll send a picture every now and then, but I prefer talking.

Absolutely not!! I once saw a picture of a young man who was literally cut in half due to texting and driving. It was a most disturbing thing to see. Everyone who texts and drives should see it.

Everyday is a new start!

I took the pledge not to text and drive, that is a scary thing to witness an accident.

I have a co-worker that admits to doing this all the time and doesn't wear a seat belt.

The killer for me is that so many adults are doing it and they dont seem to think there is something wrong with it. Are we really that busy?

Absolutely, not and I instilled in my 2 kids not to do the same thing. I encourage them have everything they need to do in the before putting it in gear. I value my life and the life of others and I wouldn't want anybodies death on my conscience, because of a phone. Hands free device or pull over and address the phone. This is what I practice.

My students are working on their school wide project called X THE TXT in conjunction with www.ChannelOne.com. It is to encourage people not to text and drive. It is amazing the number of people who have been seriously injured or killed due to texting and driving. Im sure you know that car accidents are the leading cause of death to people age 16-20. So it makes perfect sense that high school and college students should take on this project. Oprah did a story and campaign on the dangers of texting and driving back in April and it really made a huge impact on me. (Erica's story had me in tears.) God has given us the gift of technology. Its advancements are undeniably great. However, as technology advanced , some of our good sense and common courtesy has gone out the window. One of our fellow Sparkers told me last night, of an accident that killed 2 teenagers in Central Florida because someone was texting and driving. So I am curious, How many of you text and drive?

If you would like to take a stand, Take the Pledge at Register: www.channelone.com (or on Facebook)
then go to www.channelone.com/xthetxt/
To support our school use the drop down arrow and select "Cleveland Career Development & Technology Center"--but support someone. If we can save just one life, then its worth it.

Keep Sparkin'
