You can use many medications as directed and die. Doctors have been complaining about Tylonol usage being a leading cause of liver failure for years now. People die during routine dental operations. There is risk all around you. You can walk outside and get hit by a bus. A bus driver can fall asleep at the wheel and drive his bus into your living room. Right now. Life kills.

Some mistakes you don't get to make. Mistakes have consequences. To real people. We can't just ignore them and pretend it didn't happen.

The other day one kid hit their sibling on the head with a toy truck. The hitter was yelling "Sorry!" at their crying sibling who yelled back "Sorry doesn't help!" You can be sorry. But "sorry" doesn't magically make it better. It doesn't roll back time.

Mistakes can cost you your job, your family, your reputation, and your freedom. That is why you have to think before you act.
