The Moment it all Changed: Why I Stopped Texting & Driving

So we want to know, students: What did that moment look like for you? Did you hear or witness a story that touched you? Did a particularly sharp point of data whip your right-brained self into the proper perspective?

Tell us, in a well-developed essay of 500 – 1,000 words: What was the moment that you decided to stop texting and driving, knowing once and for all that you would stick to it? And why was this moment the one it all changed for you?
