There are few topics in which I have a zero tolerance for and one of them is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. There really is no safe amount of alcohol to consume and then drive a car. If you are old enough to order a beverage then you are also mature and responsible enough to plan a safe ride home.
See this beautiful face?
She is the reason that drunk driving is an intolerable offense. This is Jenny, one of my dearest friends. She was killed by a drunk driver on May 15, 1996 and there is still is not a day that passes without a thought of her. She was a beautiful soul, loved by many and missed by even more. Her life cut short by one person’s decision to drive under the influence.
