|Take the Pledge: Don't Text & Drive|
I remember my first cell phone. It was the Motorola that looked like a brick. It was heavy and awkward to cart around in my purse, but I was thrilled to be able to make phone calls while traveling alone. The level of comfort it gave me--knowing I had a way to call for help if my car broke down or something else happened--was immense.
I've never been without a cell phone ever since, but I'm not one who has it glued to my ear. I think it's such a shame when you see people dining, and each person is on a cell phone--talking or texting. Even the children are fiddling with cell phones.
Remember, cell phones are a convenience. Don't let them become an obstacle to developing relationships. Above all, never text and drive.
