Yesterday, I nearly ran over a young teenage Lubavitch girl.
It was the last second that I saw her, and with her reflexes and my slamming the brakes, much heartache was B”H averted. She then just moved on as if nothing happened but I was left very shaken by my recklessness.
I apologize to the girl (whoever you are) for nearly harming you.
I was doing what I have become accustomed to doing but vow not to do again in the future, b’ezrat Hashem.
I started off talking on the cell phone, then texting then eventually culminating with web surfing on my Blackberry, all while driving.
By taking gradual steps towards dangerous and reckless behavior, my concentration on the road has diminished so significantly, that I now thank G-D that it hadn’t taken killing someone to wake up.
I vow to learn from this and in the future do my phone calls, texting and COLlive surfing at a time other than driving.
Please take heart…
A deeply ashamed yungerman
