I was sitting in front of my laptop this morning, trying to think of something interesting or upbeat to write on the blog today, but it’s not to be, because as I was sitting here my husband got a call with some pretty horrible news. It turns out that one of my daughter’s classmates lost his father to an accident. The boy is around 4 or 5 years old.
Now, I don’t want to bring you all down, but hearing this news made my heart clench inside, so I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to take care of yourselves and always realize that there are hazards out there. We don’t know the details of this particular accident, but as an industrial worker I’ve seen and heard about plenty of avoidable accidents and it kills me a little inside every time. And it’s not just at work; people do things around their home all the time that put themselves and others in danger. Everyone thinks that they’re invincible, that they can’t make mistakes, but instead of having that attitude you should be thinking about the possible damage you could cause if you’re wrong.
Our hearts go out to the family, and to the little boy in my daughter’s class who lost his world today. That’s all I can say.
