Accidents Happen…..

There are more drivers and vehicles on the road today than ever before. All that driving adds up to an average of 6 million accidents each year in the United States alone! * That breaks down to about 16,438 accidents every day! The reality of driving is, if you do it long enough, you’re almost guaranteed to be involved in one.

Fact: Folks who don’t wear their seat belt are 30X more likely to be ejected from their vehicle during a crash. Despite those odds, and despite the fact that wearing one drastically reduces your risk of death by 45% and serious injury by 50%, amazingly 1 out of 7 drivers or passengers still don’t wear one.

As reflected by the numbers above, accidents happen quite frequently. Odds are if you drive or ride in a vehicle daily, you will find out first hand! There are a number of things […]

Holiday Letter

Letting Go

I have two friends who could hardly be more different from one another, and yet, both are faced with similar monumental decisions that will change their lives forever. For one, this choice is a test that every parent must eventually face. The moment when your child is no longer a child. That murky hormonally charged precipice when one is tempted to cast their parental safety net into the adult realm…or to let their grown child go.
