OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo sale is this important.

“This is the most important blog post I’ve ever written. It’s about what happened exactly one year ago today. Please read it and share it with others.”

This was the introduction to a heart-wrenching blog post by Jill Konrath on the devastation, grief, loss, and shame caused by texting while driving.

I was horrified when I read the story of the day her husband’s life was changed forever because another driver was multi-tasking while driving to work—something many of us do, without fully realizing the danger.

As I read Jill’s post, tears welled up in my eyes. She is a colleague and friend, so I picked up the phone and called her. Jill and her husband are still shaken by the incident.

Please read every word and never text while driving. I now put my mobile phone in my handbag when I’m behind the wheel. I have a blue tooth for phone calls, but no text message is so important that it can’t wait for you to pull over.

Read Jill’s story and share it with everyone you know.
