And don't forget to share the video above with your friends and family. After all, it only takes five seconds to share... maybe you'll save a life in five seconds.

Five seconds.
A lot can happen in five seconds.
In five seconds, you can change the course of someone's entire day with a smile.
In five seconds, you can give a great hug.
You can win or lose a game in five seconds.
In five seconds, you can lock eyes with someone across a room.
Maybe you can even fall in love in five seconds.

In five seconds, a car going 55 mph travels over 360 feet.
That is the length of a football field.
A lot can happen in five seconds.
A pedestrian can start crossing the street.
A car can stop short.
A bike can swerve into your lane.
Five seconds can be the difference between safety and danger.
Or the difference between life and death.

So the next time you are driving and want to check your texts, think of all the things five seconds is:
A smile.
A hug.
A car accident.
A life.

Do you really want to take your eyes off the road for that long?
After all it's only five seconds.
