A thought came to me the other day as I was trying to find a parking space at the grocery store.
There are no sidewalks, of course, in a parking lot. So, pedestrians and cars share the road. Mother's holding babies, toddlers walking with dads, Seniors taking their time. And, here I am in my vehicle that with one push of a pedal, can run them clear over. They trust that I'm not going to be foolish and hurt them. When you think about it, that's an amazing amount of trust.
Then, a second thought came to me as I parked my car and started walking toward the store's front door. Now, I am the pedestrian. I'm the vulnerable one here. Cars came just inches from my cart.
Thought number three entered my mind. Proceed with caution when the power to injure is just a pedal away. At some point, you'll be the pedestrian.
