You Choose…!

Every time I watch news on TV, there’s always an accident that involves motorcycles and most of the time the situation is always serious and severe. Then investigators always pointed out that the cause relates to the motorist’s attitude while driving not only the motorcycle driver’s themselves but also the other motorists. Then it is aggravated with the improper and inappropriate use of safety helmets. That is what I saw also with almost all who rode with motorcycles especially those at the back seat.

I just hope that people will change their mindset with regards to safety and will start investing in appropriate safety helmets because it is only for their own protection as well. I believe that the likes of HJC RPHA-10 helmets because it is fitted with an advanced composite shell materials that makes it durable and lightweight without compromising the safety standards.

Most of the reasons that I hear from motorists which made them hesitant to buy this kind of helmet is the price tag yet I don’t understand why they exchange the safety of their life with the price of the helmet. My hubby will always say that if you think safety is expensive then try injury. So you choose which one is the best.

Another Senseless Loss of Life

It was shocking to learn the fate of the nurse who was the subject of a prank call when the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted in the hospital with severe morning sickness. Initial reports said that the nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, committed suicide the day after the prank call was made and publicized. Many believe that she suffered a lot of stress upon knowing that it wasn’t the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinburgh who called her.

There are mixed emotions and contrasting ideas of who’s to blame for the death of Jacintha Saldanha from the apparent suicide. When the news came out that she was dead, online social media outcry keep pouring and calling the Australian DJ’s to step down from their job. It was again another tragic and nonsensical loss of life caused by a senseless prank call. And another depressing story that was reported is that her ailing mother in India is not even aware and had no idea that her daughter is already dead.

I’m not sure if someone should really be blamed or should anyone take responsibility of her death despite the fact that the prank call probably has caused a lot of strain to her life and her job as well, knowing that she was working in a royal hospital.
