It Can Wait®. Take the Pledge. (A Winner)

{Disclosure: This post is part of a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and AT&T. I also received the same AT&T "ItCanWait" gift bag that I'm giving away. The opinions are my own.}

I'm so proud that my family and I are part of AT&T's It Can Wait® movement.


I'm a big believer in the fact that no text is worth risking your life for. And I want my kids to live long and happy lives, and to eventually get married and have children of their own and so on and so on. In other words, I want the Circle of Life to continue.

As difficult as this is, I'm asking you to watch this very sobering video about a lovely fun-loving woman who died while texting and driving as told by her sister who loved her deeply and misses her immensely. She tells about what it was like for her parents to get that terrible news.

I think texting while driving is just like any other bad habit. It may be hard to break, but infinitely worth it. Good can replace the bad. In this case, here are the steps that can be taken:

Set an example for your own kids. Know the risks. Take the pledge. Speak up. Keep this conversation going. For you Blackberry and Android users, download the free AT&T DriveMode mobile app. I promise you will be saving lives. Again, the goal is to make texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving.

At&T's goal is to save lives and the "It Can Wait®" Movement is focused on a simple and powerful message: no text is worth dying for.

I want to thank all of you who have taken the pledge and have shared your promise on Facebook at page and on Twitter (#itcanwait).

It makes me happy to see that so many of you are taking this as seriously as I am.
