Yesterday I found out that I have lost my fourth friend to date to drinking and driving. One was killed by a drunk driver and the other three were drunk themselves and thankfully didnt hurt anyone else in other vehicles. I have lost friends in Afghanistan but that was always a possibility in our minds and we were prepared for that. You could even say that some were supposed to die in combat. The thing that really gets me is that my four friends weren't supposed to die and wouldnt have if drunk driving were not involved. All of this is to say that drinking and driving is not excusable under any circumstances and is one of the most selfish things that anyone can do. If you are so unsatisfied with your life that you feel the need to go drink and then drive around, do society a favor and either stay at home or make sure that you kill only yourself. This may sound harsh but far too many innocent people are hurt and killed by drunk drivers to not say it. What if your parent, wife, or children were killed by a drunk driver who did not think about anything but their own dam* self? Think about that the next time you want to do something stupid. You are all far to loved to do that to yourselves and others are far to loved to have you do that to them. Ok, let me put away this soap box of mine. Im done.
