Thank you to all the famlies and crash survivors who participated at MADD's annual vigil is for victims, survivors, advocates, friends and their families or those emotionally impacted by the crime of drunk or impaired driving. The vigil is a time to meet others who have gone through a similiar experience; where a mom can meet another mom; a dad can meet another dad; a sibling can meet other siblings; where crash survivors can meet other survivors. There were several ways to participate and to share.
