Pulling Over

A few weeks ago I was driving down the highway as an ambulance came up behind me with their lights on. I did the usual routine - and appropriately pulled over to the side of the road to let them pass safely. Of course, my normal thoughts entered my head and I quickly said a brief prayer that whoever was being transported would be okay.

As I pulled back on the road, I thought to myself - wouldn't it be nice if we would be as considerate to all drivers on the road as we are to the ambulance's that quickly approach in our rear-view mirrors? I mean, if we can automatically pull over so quickly when we see those lights appear, why can't we give that same type of consideration to all drivers instead of getting frustrated, angry, and aggressive at others who aren't driving the same way or same speed as we are?

Just something to think about...
