‘A Message to You’ inspires reader to share own story

I read A Message for You in the Rockford Squire recently and it made me think of the way I have seen alot of people driving. I no longer drive because I could have lost my life a few years ago. I thank God everyday that I am still here.

I agree with Rev. Laurie TenHave-Chapman. So many people seem to be in a rush with their lives and on the road. I would like to share my story with those people.

Three years ago, me and a friend were driving down 14 Mile Road and there was a car in front of us. In a split second the car in front of me jamed on their brakes and all I could think was turn. As I was going right (the other driver has his turn signal to go left), he decided to come my way. Thank God I went into the ditch. I hit my head on the review mirror and had a flat tire. No one else was hurt. The police were called but the other driver had left the scene.

Three months later I read a story in the Grand Rapids paper and it made me think of this night on 14 Mile Road. Fast drivers, do all of us a favor and slow down. Life doesn’t have to pass you by that fast.
