This happened about around fifty yards away from our window. One second it’s just a normal street, the next second a car runs over a street sign and crashes into a telephone pole, later a passerby on a bike was almost hit by one of the falling wires that got stuck on a passing city bus. The limited knowledge I have is that it had something to do with the driver in front suddenly stopping that caused the accident but regardless of that it serves a reminder to always pay attention – no matter what you’re doing. Nobody here was severely injured but all it takes is one moment. That’s it. Crossing the street without looking, not paying attention to the rode, not checking a weapon before cleaning it, adding too much oil while cooking, so on and so on.
One second is all it takes to go from normalcy to disaster. Always be aware of what you’re doing and what’s going on because things happen when we least expect it to. That’s all I have to say. Love ~ Jamil.
