Today my son was spared a possible serious head injury because he was wearing a bicycle helmet.
He was riding his bike in the park and swerved trying to avoid hitting a child that ran into his path. He stopped short to break and was thrown off his bike. I could see from the crack in the helmet how hard he fell. Boruch Hashem, he was wearing it!
Friends, I see too many children, teens and adults riding bikes and scooters, roller blading, all without wearing helmets.
As parents, it is our responsibility to make sure that before our children go out to do these activities that they put on properly fitting helmets. As adults, you need to use your own common sense and realize how you need to protect yourselves.
I am happily signing my name to this letter so I’m not just another anonymous person on a rant.
Have a safe and healthy summer,
