Re: “Don't Be A Dunderhead

Thank you for this important reminder. I've seen both possibilities up close.

A few years ago, a friend of ours, a father of a young boy, was hit by a truck while bike riding without a helmet. He has been in and out of comas ever since, and can't even recognize his son. In January, our landlord had a similar bike accident - hit from behind by a car. But he was wearing a helmet, and while he is not yet fully recovered, he has no head injuries.

What a huge difference a helmet can make! It may be human nature to think that serious accidents only happen to other people, but it is incredibly foolish. Where are all these "other people"? Magical thinking has never saved anyone's life!
