On this date, 13 years ago, someone’s selfish decision changed my family’s life forever. After a very abusive relationship I found a guy that I planned to share the rest of my life with. He loved my kids as if they were his own. After a few years of being together he asked me to marry him. I was happy to say yes.
I found out that the man who hit him had a blood alcohol content of 0.20. This man made the same decision that so many others make daily. Perhaps you even have. Maybe you think well I don’t drink that much but it doesn’t take that much to forever change your life and someone elses. Each time you get behind the wheel under the influcence it’s like playing Russian roulette with not only your live but the lives of others around. I could not begain to tell you what this man took from myself, my girls, Billy’s family and those who loved him.
