Family and friends traditionally get together on the Fourth of July to celebrate America’s independence.
This freedom and safety of our land has been challenged by foreign and local terrorists.
Some runners at the Boston Marathon on April 15 were victims of bombs set off by terrorists. Deaths and injuries resulted.
Such unexpected injuries and deaths can also be caused by drunken drivers.
When I was 16 in April 1992, my car was hit head on by a drunken driver. I was in a coma and faced paralysis, with multiple dislocated and broken bones. This prevented me from attending school, playing sports and spending time with family and friends.
I relearned how to talk and walk, but I cannot drive and have hearing difficulties. I never expected my life to be like this.
Notice the connection between a terrorist and a drunken driver?
The freedom and safety we cherish every day, especially on the Fourth of July, may be taken away if America’s citizens drive drunk.
Stay sober if driving. Support America, and don’t become a terrorist!
