    Crossing Roads

    Don’t kids learn road safety?

    Stop. Look. Listen. Simple…

    Kids are lucky to be alive.

    Ugh .. this could have gone wrong very quickly.

    Sadly they had an adult with them.

    Kids learn a lot of things and most parents try their best to educate them the best way they can. Adults as an example are taught that smoking, alcohol and processed meat can cause cancer and kill them yet it doesn't stop many from making the wrong choices. Why is it that when kids make a mistake or the wrong choice, some assume that they haven't been educated...

    Excessive eating & drinking, smoking and drugs are life choices one can make. Consumption in most cases does not lead to instant injury or death. You also have options to stop.

    Plenty of deprived, uneducated kids in 3rd world countries can cross roads without injury. Education can play a part, but road awareness is vital.

    Sometimes kids can be unpredictable. Make a mistake whilst crossing and it could be game over. These 2 kids can count their blessings. Maybe it’s God working on their miracle for the day, however more likely just amazing luck with an extremely diligent truck driver.

    There’s nothing wrong with making mistakes as that gives you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes. Hopefully these kids will learn. Next time they might not be so lucky.
