Today is the one year anniversary of the day some guy texting while driving hit me on Route 84 in CT, going over 60 miles an hour. I had just come to a stop for another accident and he never looked up from his phone as he barreled into the back of the car I was driving; I saw him coming in the rear view mirror. The car I hit in front of me was also totaled. I was seriously injured, and missed 2 months of work because the guy just couldn't wait to text. Some of my injuries are permanent. I do not want sympathy, I'm doing fine, I just ask that next time you think about texting while behind the wheel, you take a deep breath and realize that whatever it is, it can wait. It really can.
