Personal Message

I guess I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m a Police Officer and I’m used to being the strong one, not the victim. In one split second my life was changed forever. I lived, but it is a life of constant pain. The drunk driver took off and was never found. There are no benefits to drinking and driving, so please don’t do it.
