    Jenny was so happy about the house they had found.



    For once in her life it was on the right side of town.



    She unpacked her things with such great ease.



    As she watched her new curtains blow in the breeze.



    How wonderful it was to have her own room.



    School would be starting; she'd have friends over soon.



    There'd be sleep-overs, and parties; she was so happy



    It's just the way she wanted her life to be.



    On the first day of school, everything went great.



    She made new friends and even got a date!



    She thought, "I want to be popular and I'm going to be,



    Because I just got a date with the star of the team!"



    To be known in this school you had to have a clout,



    And dating this guy would sure help her out.



    There was only one proble! m stopping her fate.



    Her parents had said she was too young to date.



    "Well, I just won't tell them the entire truth.



    They won't know the difference; what's there to lose?"



    Jenny asked to stay with her friends that night.



    Her parents frowned but said, "All right."



    Excited, she got ready for the big event



    But as she rushed around like she had no sense,



    She began to feel guilty about all the lies,



    But what's a pizza, a party, and a moonlight ride?



    Well the pizza was good, and the party was great,



    But the moonlight ride would have to wait.



    For Jeff was half drunk by this time.



    She felt someone remove her from the twisted rubble,



    And heard, call an ambulance!

    These kids are in trouble!



    Voices she heard...a few words at best.



    But she knew there were two cars

    involved in the wreck.



    Then wondered to herself if Jeff was all right,



    And if the people in the other car was alive.



    She awoke in the hospital to faces so sad.



    "You've been in a wreck and it looks pretty bad."



    These voices echoed inside her head,



    As they gently told her that Jeff was dead.



    They said "Jenny, we've done all we can do.



    But it looks as if we'll lose you too."



    "But the people in the other car!? "Jenny cried.



    "We're sorry, Jenny, they also died."



    Jenny prayed, "God, forgive me for what I've done



    I only wanted to have just one night of fun."



    "Tell those people's family, I've made their lives dim,



    And wish I could return their families to them."



    "Tell Mom and Dad I'm sorry I lied,


    And that it's my fault so many have died.



    Oh, nurse, won't you please tell them that for me?"



    The nurse just stood there-she never agreed.



    But took Jenny's hand with tears in her eyes.



    And a few moments later Jenny died.



    A man asked the nurse,

    "Why didn't you do your best?"



    To bid that girl her one last request?"



    She looked at the man with eyes so sad.



    "Because the people in the other car

    were her mom and dad."



    This story is sad and unpleasant but true,



    So young people take heed, it could have been you.

    WOW! That is kinda freaky. In fact there is a kid/guy in jail right now in Fla, somewhere near me, that was drag racing and lost control. He hit his mom head on and killed her while she was out looking at Xmas lights. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I heard it the first time a long time ago it seems and it was on the news the other nite again. IIRC its been going on for a yr or 2 now.

    Ill see if I can find some details tommorow. This is a real life case of what can happen w/ some of the stupidity topics lately.

    That is the message that I took from this post. The story does not say that Jenny ever even had one drop of booze. She did ride in a car with someone who was drinking though....a very poor and unfortunate decision.

    I see ALOT of DWUI crashes in my line of work. The sad reality is that often times, the drunk driver survives the crash and an innocent person is killed/injured. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
