She's old and some say she should not let the outside world affect her. But she just smiles and reminds them she has Family and Friends around the world so what happens in this world will always affect her one way or another..
But on this day she had finished all her chores by 10 am and while relaxing she heard the call " we have 3 red,3 orange, 2 green and 3 black", we need 3 life flights, and available rescue units ..and the road is closed in both directions notify everyone to redirect traffic..
And all this old woman could do was pray, pray for those in the van and pray for those in the truck and that the horse trailer they were pulling was empty..
While deep in thought the call was changed to we now have 2 red,3 orange, 2 green and 4 black and the road will be closed for hours..
A second look may have prevented this tragedy.. Just like the wreck last weekend when in a hurry a car passed another car and had to cut it off to avoid on coming traffic. Taking the life of a man who never met a stranger in his life..
While brooding on this fact 6 hours later the old woman hears the hospital responding to life flight to land because now 1 orange has changed requiring life flight to a bigger and better equipped hospital over the mountains.
Friday and as evening closes in she has heard 5 calls for vehicle accidents with the morning one being the worst..With 4 lives lost and injuries that could take more lives...and yes they finally said their were no horses in the horse trailer..
Yes the she is me and i would be happier if Everyone learned Patience, learned they could live without their cell phone while driving, and as we used to tell our kids who walked to school "Look twice before crossing the street" please look twice before turning and crossing a on coming lane..That's what caused this mornings accident..
With summer upon us, children out of school and unpredictable. I truly hope everyone stays safe.. Life is precious and it's better to be late than be seriously injured or a code black...or the cause of someone else being seriously injured or a code black..
And while I'm at it if you ever get stuck on a road and don't know what has happened in front of you.. Please do not post something that may be read by someone's Family Member that causes more pain and suffering.. I was sickened by some of the things posted..even after they learned there were fatalities..
