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?
