Only by the Grace....

On my way to California, I started the party before I left. Not sure when I crossed the line from being buzzed, to downright drunk, I was lucky that I didn't kill anyone. Although no one was physically hurt that day, my crazy driving scared the hell out of many. What did, as well as what could have happened haunts me. That was four months ago, and I haven't had a drink since. I was arrested,and righfully so. I've read countless stories about DUI victims, offenders, survival, death and I don't understand how anyone who has ever gone through this can drink and drive again..again...and again. I don't take what I've done lightly. This is no joke. God never gives you more than you can bear, and I don't think I could have lived with taking the life of anyone, nevertheless and innocent person. If I'd been injured, so be it. This was my choice. Unfortunately, drunk drivers take the choice of being safe away from others. I pray for the victims and their families. I BEG EVERYONE PLEASE DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE.

My God, me too! NEW

I am facing charges for a second conviction of drunk driving. I am so very sickened by what could have happened. I am not allowing myself to forget what i have done by continuing to look up these kind of stories. Kayla Wilson from Gresham, Oregon was 19 yrs old and 5 and a half mo. pregnant. At the time of my dui my daughter was also 19 and 2 months pregnant. Kayla never woke up from her coma because of a man under the influence but they were able to save her baby, Thank God for her parents. I have the original paper clipping from her incident and look at it and pray often for her and all people who drink and drive that they somehow do what it takes to stop themselves before they end up on something like this because they have taken a life. Please, my God, forgive me!!!

Learning a lesson NEW

I want to thank you for learning your lesson and sharing your story with others. I know people who continue to drink and drive even after they get one, two even three DUIs.

being a drunk driver
by: monique williams

You are very lucky you didn't kill anyone, and I fail to understand what gives you the right to drink and drive??? Why not get your alcohol and go home or stay at a frinds for the night or have a designated driver?? Having a license doesn't mean you can drink and drive. Nothing makes me more pissed seeing people drinking and driving. It's selfish, reckless, stupid. This isn't something we are just learning that d & d kills.
My brother was killed 2 yrs ago by a 2nd time offender. He was only 34 yrs old with 3 kids, many friends and a family who loved him. It has impacted his kids and my family for life and has been devastating. luckliy the drunk who killed him, died also as she wouldn't have received the sentence she should've of. You should read my brother's story that I posted on this page. His name is Thai Williams, I'm glad you've received a wake up call and aren't drinking right now, but just in case read my brother's story
