With summer vacations starting, longer days, and mild nights, we must be even more vigilant about safety between May and September. Thus, June has been dubbed National Safety Month.
We should devote this month both to prevention of accidents and awareness of how to improve safety measures. Safety at work, at home, and on the road between them is critical to leading a secure life.
Teen driving increases in June, and we must be ever-vigilant of young drivers and their passengers. Teens should never text while driving (no one should) and must consider the safety of others when deciding on a maximum speed on the roadways.
April has been designated as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. It is a sober reminder, even as the springtime weather brings optimism and good cheer, that there are those helpless souls who are trapped in situations beyond comprehension: under the boot of physical, mental, verbal, or psychological abuse. While it is easy to turn away and say, “Well, it’s not my kid,” we must be our neighbors’ keepers and be aware of possible abuses to minors and those who cannot defend themselves. Whether by loved ones, trusted authority figures, or strangers, child abuse cannot be tolerated.
