I experienced a range of emotions – and have not yet worked them all out.
· I was grateful that we had not been 15 minutes earlier in our run. It could have been us!
· I was/am still angry that someone can be under the influence of alcohol at 8am in the morning....
· and even angrier that this person should choose to drive a car. Driving after drinking seems to be part of our culture. Men do not even blink when they pick up their car keys after a few drinks. Even more disturbing is the fact that the people around such a person do not protest or stop him.
Once again I state my case: I am opposed to mixing alcohol and motor vehicles. Anyone driving on the road should not drink at all. It is as simple as that. I drive sober. Period.
I pray for the family who have lost someone they have loved – because another person chose to impair his driving skills with alcohol.
