    Got this peom from my aunt we really need to teach or kids what this mom taught hers.


    I went to a party,
    And remembered what you said.
    You told me not to drink, Mom,
    so I had a sprite instead.

    I felt proud of myself,
    The way you said I would,
    that I didn't drink and drive,
    though some friends said I should.

    I made a healthy choice,
    And your advice to me was right.
    The party finally ended,
    and the kids drove out of sight.

    I got into my car,
    Sure to get home in one piece.
    I never knew what was coming, Mom,
    something I expected least.

    Now I'm lying on the pavement,
    And I hear the policeman say,
    the kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
    Mom, his voice seems far away.

    My own blood's all around me,
    As I try hard not to cry.
    I can hear the paramedic say,
    this girl is going to die.

    I'm sure the guy had no idea,
    While he was flying high.
    Because he chose to drink and drive,
    now I would! have to die.

    So why do people do it, Mom
    Knowing that it ruins lives?
    And now the pain is cutting me,
    like a hundred stabbing knives.

    Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
    Tell daddy to be brave.
    And when I go to heaven,
    put " Mommy's Girl" on my grave.

    Someone should have taught him,
    That it's wrong to drink and drive.
    Maybe if his parents had,
    I'd still be alive.

    My breath is getting shorter,
    Mom I'm getting really scared
    These are my final moments,
    and I'm so unprepared.

    I wish that you could hold me Mom,
    As I lie here and die.
    I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!"
    So I love you and good-bye.

    Nice, I sit here and think about my 8 and 9 year old and what I am looking at in thnex 8-9 years. It's scary. Extra scary because I've been the man on the road driving impaired. Only by the grace of God am I not one of the statistics or in jail. I pride myself as a relatively intelligent person and if I did it, who's to say my children won't?

    Just like you i thought about my Three girls. you might ask why would i post something like this cause i hoping that it would reach someone that does get out and drink and drive that there's no good in it. And how would they would have felt if that would of been one of there kids? Few years a good here where i live there was a Man and Wife headed to church and a drunken driver came along and hit the couple head on killing the man then about a month ago friend of mind was out driveing around him and his wife and a drunken driver came across the the road hitting them head on killing his wife. This is happen every day innocent people getting killed cause people are not smart anough to not drive when they drink.

    Out laws are not strong enough on drinking and driving. I drove a wrecker for many years,and would get called out all hours of the day to a wreck, i've seen it all. i've seen enough. I think the very first offence should be 2years ,with no time-off for good behaiver, . the next time should 20years. I'm sure it would stop a lot of it........thats just my thoughts on the matter ,and if anyone don't like it , thats their problem......steve.
