    Very happy the boy is okay. Unfortunately he learned the hard way that just because we see them, doesn’t mean they see us. Nor does it mean that they even care whether they see us or not, as long as they have their Instagram account updated every 10 minutes, and have gas in their car, and are on schedule with their own agenda. They don’t care who they run over in the process.
