Safety First

Floyd Haker

I am going to tell you a store about Safety First. There are very many rules and you should never go against these rules. I will tell you a story about a boy who said that Safety rules never helped him, and he wasn't going to obey them. All the girls and boys talked to him about Safety rules but he never listened to them. One day he was playing ball and the ball rolled into the street. Of course he didn't look for cars but ran into the street. A car came swiftly and hit him.  The boy's mother was very sad to see him lying in bed. A boy came to call on him and told him all about Safety rules. The boy joined a Safety club and won a prize because he had learned his lesson.
