Chinese Children Crossing The Street – At least the little one has someone to help him!, originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
Julianne and I saw these two children standing in the middle of a four-lane street during early evening rush hour traffic waiting to finish their crossing . . . alone.
This was just after I had nearly been hit by a bus crossing while the pedestrian signal was green (not that means anything here!). If I had been a tenth of a second slower and moved an inch less I would probably be writing about this after a hospital visit for X-rays, scrapes, and bruising . . .
Anyways, I just hope China works harder at modernizing its vehicle/street safety . . . though the sheer magnitude of things that would have to change, in my mind, pretty much precludes a paradigm shift.
