It is always heartbreaking to hear news about kids who were taken in heaven (sorry, I couldn't bring myself to say the excruciatingly painful word) due to accidents. A few months ago, I read in a newspaper about two children (they are brothers) who met a tragedy on their way home from school. According to the news, the older brother fetched his younger brother from school using his bicycle.
They crossed the zebra line without realizing there's a huge cement truck coming. It turned out the cement truck driver did not see the children crossing so he did not stop and hit them without realizing. How do we stop such tragic accidents from happening? A very visible Children Crossing sign would be of great help especially in roads near school zone.
Safety signs can save lives. There was another tragic accident captured on a video and was circulating over the internet. In the video, a toddler emerged from the house door and walked towards a parked car which was about to leave the house. The car driver (not sure if it was the child's father) did not see the child right behind the car. He started the car engine and tried to manoeuvre backwards. I couldn't bear to view what happened next. It was too much for the eyes of a mom with two young children. I scolded the husband for showing the video to me, I wasn't able to sleep properly after that.
I worry about my kids' safety everyday but I turn my worries into a prayer. Everyday, I pray to God to protect not just my children, but all children in the world from harm, accidents and sickness. Please do the same. Prayer is powerful and life saving too. Let's all start a prayer brigade for the safety of all our God given angels.
