She Lived to Tweet About It

She Lived to Tweet About It

They had to stop to think about this? For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.


Last week, a 19-year-old girl’s celebration nearly ended in death when she fell out of the “Flirting Flamingo” party bus onto a busy Minneapolis interstate.

Stunned drivers who saw Katie Brown fall from the emergency exit window immediately called 911. But not one of her 35 friends on the bus did. In fact, they didn’t even immediately alert the bus driver. Nearly 20 minutes passed before he heard what happened and pulled over. And when he did, more than half of the students fled the scene, afraid of getting in trouble for underage drinking!

Hold on. “Our friend might be dead, but we might get in trouble. What should we do?” The girl lived, but where are the moral instincts? This “live for today as if consequences don’t exist tomorrow” way of thinking is something I talked about on last Thursday’s BreakPoint. It’s a call for parents to pay close attention to their teenager’s worldview. Come to, and I’ll link you to the broadcast. For the Point, I’m John Stonestreet.
