when something like this happens. i can’t believe this girl is someone from northwood. that makes this whole thing so real. it’s scary and i can’t even fathom how tragic this must be for everyone involved including families and friends. i am so mad that anyone could even think of getting behind the wheel when he or she is even remotely under the influence. i just hope this guy gets life in prison for what he’s done and i wish it didn’t have to happen this way for a menace to be caught. i may be thankful for the fact that it wasn’t my friends, family, or myself that this happened to, but then i think about how although it’s not me, it happened to someone else and it must be awful for them. and so i just don’t feel like i want to be thankful at the expense of someone else. i just wish drunk driving was somehow preventable.
