Dear Mom and Dad,
Today, I made a very bad decision. I thought I’d be ok to drive. I mean it was just two drinks. I’ve done it before and it’s never been a problem. As I drove, I felt fine. But, I wasn’t. I was on my way home and I guess I was going too fast when I hit a curb. The car flipped over, and I didn’t make it.
I really wish I could have told you both how much I loved you. Please don’t blame yourself. This was my choice. I decided to drive drunk.
Your son (or daughter)
This New Years, don’t let alcohol and/or drugs turn your world, and that of others’, upside down. Designate a sober driver, use a ride share or call a taxi.... whatever you do, #PlanWhileYouCan
Unfortunately, we know the dangers of drinking and driving all too well. The decision to drink and drive CAN AND DOES COST INNOCENT PEOPLE THEIR LIVES. It’s not just about being able to afford a DWI financially, it’s about how much does another person’s life mean to you? Please, celebrate responsibly.
