Last Nite My DIL and I went to temple Tx which is about 11/2 hrs from Brenham to pick up her brother for today party. On the way there we were stop by a terrible accident, a SUV had roll over and there was stuff all over the place, it was a 1- car accident, I saw a lady hold someones head I saw men who were gather around other areas, I gather it was children that was thrown from the SUV..This accident just happen when we came up.. On our way back they were cleaning up so we were stop for 10 minutes until they could let us pass, I still saw Diaper boxes all over the ground and suitcases and kids toys... I was Praying for the family...

As we got going we saw a person passing a long line of traffic on the shoulder, one passing with several cars coming towards them, and yes one passing with a 18 wheeler coming towards them...

I guess my question is what is important that they have to risk life and limb to pass another and dont they know that when they do risk a life maybe even their own they leave behind a family... How fair is this to the person who is just trying to get home safe and sound and you get this monster on the road who has to have road rage and pass everyone up so they can get to where a graveyard....

Too bad some don't "think" at all....
