Why Not Live? A 1930’s Safety Film From The Red Cross

It’s a good question, isn’t it??? It will give you something to think about next time you contemplate doing something reckless! Check out this vintage film for a little bit of crazy driving, some snakebites, ax accidents, stove flare-ups, people falling out of canoes and little kids sticking their fingers into fans (!!!). Oh, and how the Red Cross is there to help you with them all!

Why…Not…LIVE???

    And don’t forget to watch out for those roller skates too! 🙂

      Sara – Those skates can be deadly! Also, no running with scissors!!

      Eartha – Apparently the Red Cross is our only hope against accidents AND stupidity!

    That was awesome! I think that we’ve learned here today that children can’t be trusted, pretty girls sink like stones and that one should never stand in a rocking chair. And that the Red Cross is amazing.
