    Now that the weather is getting warmer, there are scores of young boys of all ages riding bikes at top speed on both sidewalks and on the road, jumping red lights and whizzing across dangerous intersections without even looking right or left.

    I get the shivers whenever these boys whiz past me.

    Surely we must mount a campaign regarding educating our precious children about traffic laws and safety. It’s high time.

  2. their lives can still be saved. if we all do teshuva ASAP together as a nation then they will not need to be added C”V to the list of 17 children niftar in the past few weeks R”L

    we need our teire children in klal yisroel & cant afford to lose these innocent children of ours. Please say tehillim for them & start doing teshuva returning yourself to Hashem closer every day.

    may they both have a speedy refuah shleima
