This week was supposed to be full of the excitement of the first days of school.
New school supplies.
Unfortunately, instead of this being a week of firsts and excitement, your high school freshman is in a hospital room recovering from an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness. After months of telling your son how important it was to make sure that he did not use his phone at all when he was driving, it was an adult’s reckless behavior that landed your husband in the hospital. That adult was texting while driving, ran a red light, and side swiped your son’s car.
You are grateful that your son is still alive.
Looking at the car, you would not have imagined that anyone could have escaped alive.
