On Monday morning, the 27th a young lady was crossing 11th and F st. She walked right into a pole. She was walking, while texting. That same morning, a man was almost run over by a taxi while texting.

You always hear about driving and texting. But to me, walking and texting is just as unsafe. We need to pay more attention. So if you need to text: stop, look around and stay focused on what you are doing. You could lose your life or get seriously hurt. It’s not worth it. Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
