Since my sons’ were of legal age I urged them not to drink and drive; that I would move heaven and earth to come and get them if they needed a ride rather than them hurting someone and themselves.

I urge all parents to embed this in their teenage and adult children. I was a bit graphic with my sons to put the fear of God into them but so far its been successful. I love my sons and do not want them to make a life altering mistake/decision as well as a victim.

I watched my friend suffer for years to overcome the depression and anxiety she now lives with since someone decided to drive drunk and take her granddaughter from her. Rest in peace Kari Liedel
