You may have seen the news when New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine missed the meeting between Don Imus and the Rutger’s Women’s Basketball Team. The car he was in was in a horrific crash. Corzine was in the passenger seat. He wasn’t wearing a seat belt. He was in critical condition and he almost died.
Corzine is back at work and he paid the seat belt fine. He has also made a commercial telling people to buckle up. He doesn’t mince words. The commercials starts off in the most series manner, “”I’m New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, and I should be dead.” He then details the injuries incurred from his accident: the loss of blood, the 15 broken bones, and the fact that he could breath on his own.
His mistakes is irreversible. Many of his pains may stay with him for life. But, he has an opportunity to let others learn from his mistake. The commercial ends with Corzine saying “”I have to live with my mistake, you don’t,” Corzine says. “Buckle up.”
