There's a powerful Warner Herzog documentary called "From One Second to the Next" that's making waves right now about the dangers of texting and driving.
There are tear-jerkers.
Then there are sob-wrenchers.
And then there is this video.
These are true stories. If you, or a loved one, sometimes think texting and driving isn't such a big deal, this might change your mind.

Texting and Driving Kills
According to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2011 alone, over 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes.
That's more people than were killed in the 9/11 attacks.
In just that one year, 3,000 mothers, fathers, sons and daughters were taken from families that loved them - families who are now left to live with a gnawing pain that the horrendous accident that killed their loved one could have been prevented.
And people are still being killed. Every. Single. Day.
Not to mention all the victims like Xzavier or Debbie who were not killed, but their lives are forever changed.
Texting and driving is illegal in North Carolina and it must be taken seriously.
