Losing a family member or friend is absolutely one of the most difficult experiences to go through, especially when their life was taken away by someone else’s selfish mistake.
It’d be easy to become resentful and jaded after your father was killed in a drunk driving accident, but instead of fueling her anger, a woman named Angela, along with the help of a male driver, offered free rides to those who had been drinking so that she could try to prevent what happened to her from happening to others.
“If you have been DRINKING tonight, I’d like to offer you a free ride home. Two years ago this week, a man was drinking and driving and killed my father. In honor of his memory, I’d like to help keep the roads safe tonight.”
As bar patrons walked past Angela, some became interested in her sign while others didn’t know what to say and simply walked away. However, some passersby wanted to wrap their arms around Angela in what made for a truly emotional picture.
Then there was Carissa, who sadly could relate to Angela (she’s the blonde woman in the picture below). She told everyone in the car that addiction had touched her family, admitting that a relative
“could have easily killed anyone while drunk driving and was lucky that they never did”
What Angela went through was really heartbreaking, and even though her action may have been a small one, she dedicated her time to it. Even 1 less drunk driver off the road changes things massively.
