And I wished I could explain to her the work and joy that was put into her life by her parents and those around her, and how quickly that work and joy could be destroyed. Just by texting.

June is National Safe Driving Month. This week, my husband and I are testing out an H17txt with MotoSpeak™, thanks to Motorola. Over Bluetooth it reads your text messages and emails to you.
Next weekend Motorola’s “Get Smarter”™ cars will be in Minneapolis to teach consumers how to drive responsibly and stay legal this summer. For your chance to win an H17txt with MotoSpeak™ and a free ride in Motorola’s “Get Smarter”™ car on June 18th and 19th, follow Motorola on Twitter and Facebook.
