I have three DUIs in my still relatively short life. All occurance resulted in accidents, though luckily ALL have been one car accidents, my own. I do know now that each time I sat behind the wheel drunk, I endangered every life that was on the road. One positive, on top of never injuring anyone, is that I never drove with a suspended liscense. My liscense is gone for 10 years as we speak (7 more to go), and I have not drove at all, not even just to park a car.
These incidents were incredibly stupid on my part. Me and my wife pray ALL of the time in thanks for never injuring/killing anybody. Because of these incidents, I have become pretty religious. I actually 'teach' a alcoholics meeting at the church that I attend.
I am deeply saddened for all involved in this situation, and any and every similiar to it. You all can bash me if you want, as it is the easy way out during/after a tragedy. To even tell this in a forum like this has taken quite a bit of heart on my part. I hate to say it, but things happen for a reason. God has a plan for all the people involved and not involved in this situation. If we do not grow and become better people for it, then we have failed. I know that I will not fail because of what I have gone through.
I have and will continue to pray for all those involved. My best wishes to those.
It takes a big man to admit mistakes. It takes an even bigger man to correct them. I despise DaShiz who chose to endanger lives by driving drunk, but have an awful lot of respect for DaShiz who could potentially be saving lives by telling others just how stupid DaShiz used to be.
Driving drunk is one of the most senseless and selfish acts that I can think of.
