Anthony's life and everyone's life is worth much more than a text or a glance at Facebook.
I live in Florida. Every day I see people with their phones in their hands too busy texting and not paying attention. They are a danger on the roads. They don't seem to think that they will hurt anyone. My children's lives are more important than that text!!
I am signing this because every day that I get behind the wheel to drive, I take a look at my surroundings, and it is truly scary the amount of people that are distracted with their phones while driving. I am afraid to drive in these conditions. And no one appears to be doing anything about it. This needs to stop. Someone's life may be in danger each and every time.
My son is also 19, and I don't want the same thing to happen to him! What a handsome boy Anthony was. Such a nice smile. It's tragic, really really senseless and unforgivable.
After seeing the Change.org petition, I wanted to know more about Anthony and the life he had led leading up to the day he was no longer with us. What a child, boy, and man he was. This world is definitely worse off for his absence. The more I read, the more his story touched me. Nothing is so important that it’s worth risking the life of yourself or someone else. Where many would wallow in sadness (completely understandable) you’ve turned it around and tried to get as much of a positive outcome as possible. For that, you should be commended. I have seven children myself and I can’t imagine what losing one would do to our family. Know that Anthony (Bob) Branca is in my thoughts.
