Don’t Leave your kids in the car.
Spread this like wildfire. This man, Terry Williams, made a PSA to spread the reality of what little children go through when locked in a hot car.
As it says in the USAtoday article:
A child’s body temperature can increase three to five times faster than an adult’s. That means only minutes left alone in a car can be fatal for a child.
"I’m sitting in the car with the windows rolled up cause I want to know how it feels to be left in the car,"
"As you can see, I’m sweating, like I can barely breathe out here, but my system is stronger than these little kids systems."
Tumblr I’m counting on to get this going. Spread it like wildfire.
This is a topic that make me sob every time I see reports on the news of children or animals suffering from being left in a hot car. These innocent lives who suffer like this cannot protect themselves.
So, please take the time to spread this message and help people to stop and think before considering to leave precious lives locked in a vehicle.

I remember hearing about several deaths involving this shit on the radio god damn.
How can someone even justify leaving a helpless infant alone in a car at all?
Extra Info: If you see a child in a car who is obviously in distress, call emergency services before you do anything else. Ask the emergency personnel what you should do before taking further action.
Please do not break windows unless you are either directed to or have prior knowledge of how to break the window in this kind of emergency situation (there is a way to do it properly and a dozen ways to do it wrong).
Kalopsia: it’s a condition wherein things appear more beautiful than it actually are.
