Hi all, Karen here. I thought it was about time I get the ball rolling on this blog, so a bit about the project, first. In 2012, drunk driving was responsible for over 10,000 deaths and 345,000 injuries. One in three people will be affected by drunk driving in their life time. I’m heart-broken whenever I hear the multitude of stories that arise from victims and survivors gracious enough to share their experience with the rest of us in the hopes of raising awareness and making the world a safer place for everyone.
That’s why Chris and I have taken it upon ourselves to serve as vocal supporters and regular donors to MADD as we continue to search for ways to contribute to a cause that hits close to home for too many of us.
This blog will be about education. We want to share access to the resources that we’ve spent time exploring in-depth, in the hopes that even one person might come across these words in one important moment and learn something that may help them make the right decision or guide others onto the right decisions. We simply want to add our voice and aid in progress toward a safer world, where fewer people have to mourn the tragic and avoidable loss of a loved one. It is in this way that we can all work together to save lives and ultimately eliminate drunk driving.
