Drownings, trampers going missing, children dying in fires ....
What is it about summer that makes people think they are invincible and no longer heed the natural warnings and danger signs of life??
The one that affects me the most is the fires. There have been a number of deaths recently of children in fires. This week four children were killed in a house fire. The adults had been frying food and left the pan unattended. A harsh price to pay for a bit of absentmindedness. (is that a word??)
Sunburn?? I had my sister in law pop around the other day with her kids and mother in tow. The mother is 64 and yet, was foolish enough to sit outside with her bra and pants on (skin that never usually sees the light of day) and had severe sunburn. What a dick. I mean any mother, especially a grandmother, knows that the sun burns.
People!!! Think about things, take a minute to assess the risks, we aren't invincible, sometimes you just can't be so cruisey. You have to pick and choose the things in life that are cruise-worthy.
