2016 Winter Reading Challenge - Results!

This year's Winter Reading Challenge was a great success!

ICE – In Case of Emergency

You never think it’s going to happen to you or to your loved ones, but extreme emergencies do happen. Several years ago, my sister was in a terrible car crash. The EMT’s were able to get to her phone’s contact list to find my dad’s info to call us, so within a few hours, all of us were able to make it up to the hospital to be with her. But ever since that day, I’ve always wondered what would have happened if she had put a lock on her phone that would have prevented the EMTs from calling us so quickly.
