May the Lord comfort and heal the injured and all those who were involved, including their families and loved ones. May the Lord enter the hearts, minds and souls of all who drive to be cautious when on the road, not just in their own actions but those who are around them.

We never know what tomorrow may bring. Therefore, preventing danger to happen is a clever thing to do. Yet, when we're in a situation between life and death -- we can also think if we could ever escape? However, prevention is still better that cure and as we quote "it's better to be ready that to be sorry." And for this, I would suggest this safety service that I'm currently using for me and my family. It is a Panic Button installed on a Smartphone's and it allows us to alert all the member of our family when danger comes. It can also identify the exact location and have the ability to search the address of any family that you wanted to locate.
