Two years ago today my friend Sarah was killed by a drunk driver. She was 34 years old and at the time her kids were 2 years old and 8 months old, thank God they were not with her in the car. They needed their mommy and she was ripped from them in a moment. The woman who killed Sarah also died and left her then 3 year old daughter injured and motherless.
This kind of thing does not need to happen. Please if you drink, please do not drive while drunk. Please do not drive even if you only have a buzz. Please be responsible. There is no good reason to kill the mother (or father or grandparent or child) of anyone. Nothing is worth that. Nothing.
Please don't drink and drive. If the only good thing that comes from Sarah's death is another child not having to say good-bye to their mother much too soon then her death was not in vain.
Please don't drink and drive.
