*******************************************

Just a note, the lady that hired me when I first came to the school system just lost her granddaughter of 17 years old; a drunk driver plowed into the back of the car she was in with her best friend at the wheel. They were both

Sitting at a red light wearing seat belts and sober. The man that killed them was 23 and drunk; this was in a residential area around 11:45pm at night (it was a Friday evening). Both girls were HS seniors. This just happened a couple of weeks ago.
Please sign this petition.

 

(Read all the way to the bottom and sign your name)

Went to a party Mom… 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 t o 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.

Hooked on a Feeling????

[YouTube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfwyuofTdV0]

It seems a shame to see someone hit bottom as he has been shown to the world this week by his daughter’s own video of him. I don’t think that she was trying to be spiteful, just at her wit’s end as she tries to intervene and help her father.

Anyone who has been around an alcoholic, they know of the pain of watching them spiral downwards from the person that you knew and love, and one that you know is still somewhere in that body that seems to be deteriorating as the evilness of the alcoholism takes over their heart, body and soul.

At some point, one has to draw the line and walk away (if that is what it takes) in order to bring home a point that they need help and ask for that help. Unfortunately, one of the hardest lessons to learn in life (because we are natural nurturers and caretakers) is that the only person we are going to change is ourselves. We have that power to say, “This is my wake up call and I am going to change.” Until the person you see spiraling downward truly states that, from the bottom of their heart with absolute and resounding meaning (and not for the sake of keeping you around), they want that help, there isn’t much that you can actually do other than encourage them, provide them the resources to call, etc. They have to want it… they have to crave for the help…they have to have the determination for success in getting the necessary help needed.

Hopefully, David Hasselhoff will, too, crave and desire for the help that he so apparently needs, as evident in his 17 yo daughter’s video of him in his seemingly rock bottom state of mind.

Hopefully, he’ll find freedom soon in his own sobriety….
