Notice something different about your morning paper? For one day we re-wrote the news of the day and eliminated the stories about tragic accidents and other preventable injuries that so often dominate the front page.

Behind our light-hearted approach lies a serious point. Imagine if we could re-write those tragic stories—if we could somehow take back that one bad decision, that one moment of not thinking, that one time we said, “it will never happen to me” before it actually did happen.

The fact is, we all play a role in contributing to these injuries which are preventable. If we all work to change our attitude and had a word with ourselves before we engaged in risky behaviour, there might not be any news about tragic accidents at all.
