Forty years ago, my own mother was killed by a drunk driver. She was the first car off a green light when the other car sped through a red light and tee-boned her car, killing her instantly, leaving my father a widow and her four children without their mother. I was barely four years old, but my siblings were old enough that they have memories of the policeman coming to our home to tell us the bad news. They remember her funeral, though have no memories of the event, or any of my mother who was taken away before she was even 30 years old.

It is because of this, that I have a personal interest in the eCard being circulated by The Century Council for the Fourth of July holiday that reminds people to stay safe this Independence Day and not drive drunk.

I hope you will watch the video and remember to be safe this holiday weekend
