That car you're driving, that's a lethal weapon.

Another little boy is dead. Bram's death in vain...

WAKE UP DRIVERS!

I'm reading the disgusting commentary and the blame being placed on parents and you need to stop. We drive these 2-3 ton beasts and expect children to be cautious? WE ARE DRIVING LETHAL WEAPONS!

Blah blah blah, "cars don't kill people, people kill people" well anyone can operate a car, license or no license, insurance or no insurance, distracted or not distracted.

So you're speeding for that parking space, you went the wrong way down the aisle, you're on your phone, you're flipping through the radio stations, you're gabbing with people in the car, you looking for landmarks instead of at the road, you see a beautiful person, you're texting, you're applying make up, you're checking yourself out, you're screaming at the kids in the back seat, you're mad at the drivers around you because they are being reckless so you're just as reckless to one up them. Just STOP. YOU ARE DRIVING PAY ATTENTION BEFORE YOU KILL SOMEONE.

It could be any of us that murders a child. The thing is you don't just kill a person, you destroy a family, you rip away innocence  you trample dreams, you drag mothers and fathers into the depths of insanity and heartache. I don't care how good of a person you are, if you can't bother to SLOW DOWN and PAY ATTENTION long enough to protect children from you, from the several tons of machine that you insist on hurtling down the road at speeds that will rip a child's face off of his skull, you are a bad person.

WAKE UP. Before you've got a child's blood on your hands, before you ruin a family, before you make the world a darker place.

Rest in peace Ricardo Rocha, I'm so sorry you were stolen from your family like Bram was stolen from us. Perhaps if they made an example of Bram's killer and actually pressed charges or you know even issued a ticket maybe you'd be alive. I'm so sorry.
