DRUNK DRIVERS A THREAT TO US ALL

by BARBARA MOFFIT
(GLEN OAKS, NY)

DEAR BETSY AND AL,

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE HURT AND DESPAIR THAT YOU ARE BOTH FEELING AT THIS SAD TIME OF YOUR LIFE. WHEN WILL SOMETHING BE DONE TO THESE DRIVERS WHO JEOPARDIZE OUR LIVES, IS THERE ANY JUSTICE FOR THE INNOCENT PEOPLE? I AM BARBARA MOFFIT, MICHAEL FELDMAN's AUNT AND CAN ONLY HOPE THAT JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED ON THE MONSTER WHO KILLED YOUR SON, AND INJURED EVERY ONE ELSE IN THAT CAR, MY NEPHEW, MICHAEL, WAS JASON'S BEST FRIEND AND WAS SITTING RIGHT BESIDE HIM WHEN THAT TERRIBLE MOMENT OCCURED, MICHAEL WILL SUFFER THE LOSS OF JASON FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE, AS WILL EVERY ONE WHO KNEW AND LOVED HIM. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND CONDOLENCES TO YOU AND AL, AND YOUR DISTRAUGHT FAMILY. IT REALLY DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT TO HAVE LAWS THAT ARE SO IGNORED AT TIMES BY THE LEGAL SYSTEM, IF THAT MONSTER WAS NOT LET OUT OF PRISON SO EARLY, ONE PROMISING LIFE WOULD BE SAVED AND THREE 21 YEAR OLDS WOULD BE DOING WHAT ALL 21 YEAR OLDS SHOULD BE DOING, ENJOYING LIFE, PLANNING THEIR FUTURES. THANKS TO THAT MONSTER, JASON's FUTURE CAME TO AN ABRUPT AND PAINFUL END. PLEASE KNOW THAT I WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED UNTIL I HEAR THE DRUNKEN DRIVERS ARE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST, AND SINCE IT WAS A SECOND OFFENSE AND HE WAS NOT ALLOWED TO BE ON THE ROAD, HE SHOULD BE PUT AWAY FOR LIFE. I WILL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE WHEN A L L OF THEM ARE LOCKED UP NOT FOR 30 DAYS BUT LET THE SENTENCE FIT THE CRIME, AND IN THIS CASE, IT WAS MURDER PLEASE I WISH FOR YOU ALL THE STRENGTH AND PERSEVERANCE TO CARRY ON AND WITH THE HELP OF GOD, TO REMEMBER ALL THE GOOD TIMES YOU HAVE SHARED WITH JASON, AND KNOW THAT HE IS NOW AT PEACE.

GODS BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
