A small request if you will....

Buckle up

Today I went to a viewing for a man who died too early.
He was driving and lost control of his vehicle.
He was thrown from the truck.
He was not wearing his seatbelt.

He leaves behind a wife and six beautiful children.
The oldest of those children is only 16.

I saw a picture of the truck.
It didn't look like it had been in too bad of an accident.
He probably would have survived,
had he taken 5 extra seconds and clicked his seatbelt into place.

Please....Please...Please....

This is so sad! We always buckle! I will be praying for this family!

Always, always. With Adam working for Wendover ambulance, he has seen probably a hundred rollovers out there, and many people just don't buckle up.

Nice reminder. It's always so heartbreaking for those left behind to think something so simple could have saved their dad's/husband's/son's life.

So sad.

Thank you for the reminder. I feel completely naked in a car without my seatbelt, that's for sure.

How terrible. My heart breaks for the family he left behind.

Such an unnecessary tragedy!

I actually am very good about the buckling thing if only to stop the annoying dinging noise the car makes

So sad. I feel naked if I don't have my seatbelt on.

I refuse to move the car until everyone is buckled...especially the hubby!
