    I hope these girls are doing ok.I see kids pulling out from high school all the time without their seatbelts on.It's scary.They think they will live forever.I hope these two realize why wearing the seatbelt is so important,and hopefully they will wear theirs whenever they heal and ride in/drive a car.Good luck to both!Get healed soon!
