The kids that I take to school (9, 5, 5) and I were standing on the corner of a busy intersection, away from the road, waiting for the crosswalk to turn green (walking man). A car pulled up, not paying attention to anything at all but whatever was in her hand. The car (small SUV) stopped just short of the crosswalk. We saw the walking man, and started across the street. The car still wasn't paying attention and hit one of the 5 year olds. That child is now at the ER with a broken leg. The driver never even saw us, was too busy on her phone and the traffic, never once looked at the sidewalks for pedestrians, even though that particular light is situation between two different school zones.
And to make this a question: Please pray and send healing thoughts to this little girl. Her birthday party is coming up March 16th and now I don't think she'll be able to go roller skating like her mom and I had planned. Our girls' birthday's are 6 days apart and we were planning a combined party.

Oh that's horrible! How traumatic that must've been for all of you with that little girl. And that poor girl, right before her Bday! (Not that there's ever a good time to get hit by a moron driving thru your school zone) I hope she heals quickly. *hugs*
