Notify the police. E

Notify the police. Each QuotesChimp has its own laws regarding when the
police must be notified after an accident. In addition to that, your policy
will require you to report an incident to the police if you seek to present
a claim for an uninsured motorist based on a hit-and-run driver leaving the
scene of an accident.

you guys got it all wrong.. it is kind of like the quote "God is dead"
-Nietzsche.... he is commenting on how it is a popular idea that u must be
quiet to hear the voice of God.. but the last line is saying that it hasnt
been heard... as if .. there is no one there

This poem is just like the story in 1 Kings 19:11-12 (in the Bible).
Elijah was waiting before God on a mountain. First, a mighty wind came and
tore into the mountain, then an earthwake, then a fire. But God was not in
those. He then spoke to Elijah in a still, small voice. God chooses to
speak to us this way, and it is wonderful!!

i thinkit means that who ever you are, we can all hear the voice of God. It
just depends on how you hear it.
