Ok your invincible or at least you thought you were
It may have seemed a good idea at the time
Only a short time ago you and your best friend/mate/girlfriend was having a great time some one suggested you go for a joy ride
The keys are where they always are
Mum and Dad trust you they will never know
You knew you shouldn't but hey your invincible nothing's going happen to you
Some how your in a car going way to fast
You don't know what happens next but I can tell you
You've been skylarking and lost control the power pole has halted your journey suddenly and violently it really doesn't matter what happens from now on your dead
Your best friend/mate/girlfriend is critically injured trapped in the wreckage a passer by calls 000
Your good idea now brings with it a whole new range of actions
People you have never meet are being called to respond to your accident
Volunteer members of the CFA only moments before where about to sit down for dinner with their family have been summoned by the shrill pager
Your idea of fun has disrupted the lives of 50+ people you have never meet.
Not only those people on the way to clean up the mess you have created but others who have responded that didn't make the trucks
The Police are redirected from a domestic dispute to the crash scene an ambulance that should have been going to to a sick child are now on the way to assist.
People now have to deal with the aftermath some are traumatized by what they see only they don't know it yet
The rescue crew cut your best friend/mate/girlfriend from the wreckage they are transported to hospital and will survive yet they will be haunted by that night for the rest of their lives. Yes they will visit your grave but over the years they will come less often.
The young Police Officer now has to break the news to your Parents who were looking forward to watching you grow up your mother and father will never get over it.
Your brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, friends, teachers and workmates will miss you and search for an answer that only you know the answer to and that is. Why?
So for those of you able to make the choice please make the right one by all means enjoy yourselves but please don't make a decision that will affect the lives of people you have never meet
I know I would rather stay home with my family and you with yours
