I swear that it hit me all of a sudden like a ton of bricks!
It was the beginning of the New Year. Now, me myself, I have never been the one to make any new year’s resolutions. Mainly because of religious beliefs and the way that I was raised as a young child. New Year’s was considered to be a Holiday that was based upon pagan belief… but that’s a whole blog post for another day. 🙂
So it just so happened to be a few days before the first of the new year of 2014.
Somehow I come across this video on this little known blog (just by coincidence?) on the Internet. It had a video… I clicked play… I watched and the video that I watched was the very same video that I ended up posting on my Facebook page right >>>HERE<<<.
Little did I know then, the impact that this very short video would have on the lives of so many people. Yet, I should have known…
I should have known because of the impact that this short video had on me. I used to be one of those very foolish people that would text and drive.
Never put much thought into it really. I mean, deep down inside of me somewhere, I knew that it was a crazy thing to do… but it just seemed like when my phone would go off alerting me that I had a text message, I had no choice but to reach for it and look.
That is… until I saw this video. This video changed my perspective about texting and driving forever!
Since January 1, 2014, when I posted this video, it has had over 1 MILLION shares on Facebook.
Can you imagine how many people have viewed this video, at this point, if it has had that many shares?
I have gotten inbox messages from many people thanking me for sharing the video and asking for a way to download it to share with schools, driver’s education students and various other groups.
I later found out that the short four-minute clip that I shared was actually a very small part of a 30 minute short film.
I began to search for it, to no avail, initially. Then one day, I somehow found it. It was in four separate segments, but I eventually got the four segments and edited them into one video, which I am posting the link to here.
All of this in the hopes that it will affect just as many people or even more than the four-minute clip ever could.
Please share this video if it compels you to do so. I did… and look what happened.
But don’t just share the video. I would truly love it if you would also share your thoughts as well below in the comments.
You can download the full video minus my short introduction >>>HERE<<<.
I suggest that you watch the video in full screen mode. I recorded the intro to the video in high-definition so it may be larger than some computer displays.
Make it a great day! And…
