A week ago today a terrible thing occured. The parents of a friend of mine were on their motorcycle when they were hit head on by a car. The car had been side-swiped by a drunk driver, causing it to cross the center line into oncoming traffic. The car then hit 2 motorocycles, each with 2 people on them. The people from one bike were pretty seriously injured and are still in the hospital, the other couple were pronounced dead on the scene.
The couple that were killed have three children, all over the age of 19 thankfully, but still, losing your parents is not a good thing to have happen at any age.
Please everyone take this message and never drive under the influence. You could easily change your own life, or someone elses forever. My friends will never have their parents back. The other couple will never have their legs back. The people ridding behind them will forget what they witnessed. The woman who hit them will never forget having hit them. Everyone who's lives have been touched by these great people will never forget them, but will never have them back.
The man who caused this incident stands for 15 years in prison for each of those killed, and 5 years for each of those injured. That's 40 years of his life that he will never get back. All for one dumb act.
I personally don't pray, but I do believe in the power of positive thoughts. So please, send positive thoughts or prayers their way.
And remember, never drink and drive.
You may feel like you can handle a car, and that you are okay, but other people's lives are at stake. Can you really handle that much pressure impaired?
