A modern British LED Traffic Light (Siemens Helios Mk1 LED) in Portsmouth. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A stormy night, a busy intersection with no traffic light (the light was taken out by a blown transformer).

Two vehicles, neither driver doing anything wrong collide, one survives, the other doesn’t.

The surviving driver, a young woman was placed in a situation, where she did nothing wrong, but ended up killing an elderly man.  He lived his life.  She has to live hers having been put in a situation through no fault of her own.

What is the lesson from this story?  Situations happen you cannot plan for.

And the band played on.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
