Today we will tell you about a girl who always listened to her mother and her advice. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough, and she died in a tragic accident because of a drunken teenager. The story of a 16-year-old boy who runs over and kills a girl is fictional – but the message and the seriousness of the matter are very real. Here’s why you should never drive on the effect of alcohol or other substances:
I went to a party, Mom. I remembered what you said. You told me not to drink, Mom. So I drank soda instead. I felt really proud, Mom. The way you said I would. I didn’t drink and drive, Mom, though the others said I should. I know I did the right thing, Mom. I know you are always right. Now the party is finally ending, Mom. Everyone is driving out of sight. As I got into my car, Mom, I knew I’d get home in one piece.Because of the way you raised me, so responsible and sweet.
I started to drive away, Mom. But as I pulled out into the road… The other car didn’t see me, Mom, and hit me like a load. As I lay there on the pavement, Mom, I hear the policeman say: ‘The other guy is drunk’, Mom. And now I’m the one who will pay.
I’m lying here dying, Mom… I wish you’d get here soon. How could this happen to me, Mom? My life just burst like a balloon. There is blood all around me, Mom. And most of it is mine.
I’m trying not to cry, Mom. But I can hear what the ambulance people are saying: this girl is going to die. I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn’t drink at the party. The driver was probably at the same party as I was. The only difference was that he chose to drink and drive, and now I’m going to die.
So why do people do this, Mom? Don’t they know that they harm lives? The pain I feel now is as if a hundred knives were stabbing me. The kid who hit me can’t do anything. I’m here dying and all he can do is watch.
Tell my brother not to cry, Mother. Tell Dad to be strong. And when i go to heaven, mom, write ‘Daddy’s girl’ in my grave. Someone should have told this kid that alcohol and driving don’t match. If someone told him this, I might have lived. Someone should have taught him that you can’t drink and drive. Maybe if his parents told him something, I would still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom. I’m becoming very scared. Please don’t cry for me, Mom. When I needed you, you were there. I have one last question, Mom, before I say goodbye. I didn’t drink and drive – so why am I the one to die?
