DUI – driving under the influence or DWI – driving while intoxicated has become prevalent in the news lately; celebrities, teenagers, college frat parties, and so on. It has become very common in adults and teenagers. Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Tony Rock (Chris Rock’s brother), Mike Tyson, Rebecca De Mornay, Nick Bollee, Parris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Ray Liotta, Vivica A. Fox; Tony LaRussa, Warren Moon and Shia LaBeouf are just a few of the celebrities who have been caught in the Celebrity DUI Spotlight. Apparently not pay much attention to statistics and news, because on average, every 40 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver.
DUI or DWI has become prevalent in today’s society. In 2002, 2.3 Americans aged 18 and older were analyzed, and reported alcohol impaired driving. When compared to the 1997 survey, the number of the same population in a given year 2.1. The National Commission against drunk driving (NCADD) of more than 20% of all traffic fatalities in the United States each year there is cause for drunk driving. DUI or DWI prove deadlier than I knew before. Executives often over look that intoxicated or DWI dangerous. People do not take the trouble to understand the tragic consequences of DUI and the basis for this risk.
I understand that we live in a very secular society and partying and having a good time is a part of human nature, but the simple key responsibility. I’m sure you’ve heard of some of MADD (Mothers against drunk driving) and SÅDD (students destructive decisions) campaigns out there. MADD is a non-profit organization that seeks to stop drunk driving, support the stakeholders of drunk driving, prevent underage alcohol use, and full push stricter alcohol policy. The organization was founded in 1980, the Irving, Texas Candice Lightner, then 13-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Clarence Busch. On the other hand, founded Sadd in Students Against drunk driving in 1981, Wayland, Massachusetts, has grown to become the nation’s dominant peer-to-peer youth prevention organization with more than 10,000 chapters in middle schools, high schools and colleges in the USA (United States). In 1997, in response to ask students themselves Sadd Saddam has expanded its mission and name and now sponsors chapters called Students destructive decisions. Sadd continues to support the use of alcohol and other drugs related to the company “is not available” message. The expanded focus, SÅDD now highlights prevention of all destructive behaviors and attitudes that are harmful to young people, including underage drinking; drug use, impaired driving, violence and suicide.
The state drinking campaigns. Responsible includes plans before the party booze time. This involves getting behind a designated driver, he plans to sleep at a friend’s house, where a party is held there or sleep in your car, if you find yourself in a bar or club. Do not be a victim or a part of the statistics. You need to be responsible enough to understand the consequences and the effects of drunk driving to places such as the individual and for society. I would like to introduce to you some families. Here are the first family. Imagine the three children and the mother of a large family gathering, and on the way home, the children’s grandmother and deliver the car in front of you. Suddenly, the driver going the wrong way, drunk, beat the family frontally. The three children and the mother immediately die right in front of your eyes. Imagine this pain, hurt and suffering that you have to endure the rest of your life. Someone decided to take a chance on life, and took the lives of four of their own.
This happened to Cassie Crapps 26 years, on February 6, 2008 in Arkansas. Her three children and mother was killed by a repeat offender who has decided to be irresponsible. He wanted to party and have a chance. “You can not eat your cake and have it.” This saying is true. When human life, especially where others are a concern, you can not take chances. Life is not about gambling; LIFE is expensive. That’s one thing you can not give back to someone if we consider do not have that power. It can hurt someone with a bad thing and apologize to them and forgive. However, if you hurt a person’s feelings, there will still be a way to make him understand, through apologies. You can damage something from someone and be able to pay back in cash or other goods and services. however; If damaged life of a person or a person, it will never replace the destruction, pain, disappointment, pain, agony and suffering felt by love is left to carry the burden or take care of injuries. This pain is indescribable. The hole is so deep that no matter how many condolences comes does not require that the location of that person once occupied.
September 19, 2008, lost someone very dear to me, my husband. My nightmare begins every September 14 My husband called home from work, and it was the transformation:
Smal: Hi Sweetie,
Lydia: Hi Smal. How are you?
Smal: You’re awake?
Lydia: Yes. I just woke. I spent the whole day salon. You need to find another salon. They’re going too slow in the current site.
Smal: Does a good job with your hair?
Lydia: Yes, that’s enough.
Smal: Honey, you will not believe what happened to me.
Lydia: What? Are you okay? You’re stuck in traffic?
Smal: No. My car is overheating, do not understand it. It was only servicing.
Lydia: Where are you?
Smal: I am a 23 exit 695, on the left, on the shoulder. Have you turned off the car to help the engine to cool.
Lydia: Honey, I think you can turn around and try to go to mom’s house. Not far from there, and then I’ll meet you there.
Smal: No honey. It’s too late to go to your parents’ house. They are all asleep. I’m too tired. I just want to come home.
Lydia: You want me to call a tow truck?
Smal: They will not be forever. You know what? Come and meet me. Bring antifreeze and it will be used to cool the engine and lead behind me. If this continues to give us a problem, we’ll call a tow truck.
Lydia: OK sweetie, I’ll see that a couple.
Smal: and oh, baby, you could drink some water, I’m thirsty.
Lydia: Okay, I’ll be there soon. Bye, baby.
In my wildest dreams, I never thought that this is the last conversation that pervades between my husband. When I got there, everything was where I saw the flashing lights of police cars and ambulances. The interstate has been stopped. It is about 3-4 lanes on the highway, and they are all closed at around 1 / 2-1mile before the collision. I called my husband about a million times and then I realize that she needs who attended the crash. The tears started; My legs became weak, numb. I did not feel the pedals under my feet. My heart was pounding and pulses was faster than my thoughts. I felt like I was passing out. I called my mother. He ran to my aid. I did not know if I wanted to move forward or stop. I knew that the world had turned upside down, but I did not know the details. Finally, after 1 hour, or one and half hour, the traffic began to move. I could not wait to see the scene. I was praying and hoping, and then I saw my husband Mustang. The car windshield was on the roof. I just wanted you to know that my husband where abouts. They said he helivac (emergency medical helicopter) shock trauma. I am a registered nurse so; I knew it was not good. I raced to the hospital, and my husband has been revived x 1. My tears flow into, like rain. I could fill a house by then. I prayed like you’ve never prayed before.
The husband suffered a pelvic fracture, was a great loss of blood. He also suffered damage to his lungs. He needed immediate surgery. He told doctors that he had the full code. This meant that the need to know everything, and he knew to save his life. My husband made it out of surgery, but we are still in serious danger. I prayed. He was intubated but it was not enough. She started dying, blood was everywhere. I’m used to that, and I find myself in the mist of it all. The doctors and nurses initiated another of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). From 02: 00-07: 00, 4 x Smal would revive He was a eckemo because intubation alone was not enough. This machine acts as an external lung and heart, the circulation going. At least, that’s what I said. In the absence of kidneys it began. Blood transfusion was launched. In fact, the blood transfusions were launched in the OR (operating room). From 02: 00-12: 00, Smal received about 30units blood.
received about 80units blood within 2 days. I was very scared and just sound, it’s my mom. He refused to leave the hospital. I slept on the floor with my sister-in-law visits the castle grounds. The hospital could not provide the device in any room, because all the beds were valuable. I did not want to be away from my Smal, the “Honey”. When I got to the room, I go back and pray, this is all part of the body pain and anguish to my God. On the third day, which went on a Tuesday Smal an operation. We still do not know what happened at the accident scene. I have my knees, and he made it through. The doctors have told me I do not know what the family was doing, but keep doing it. We all pray for healing. Thursday, Sma I sat next to him and tell him I love him. I told him that God would heal, and all he did was crying. All he saw tears rolling down her cheeks. I knew that I can feel the presence and touch, despite a comma. I tried when I was around him strong. I did not want to hear the cry and give up. I told him Honey, why are you crying? I love you and I always will, no matter what. God will heal me. His sister spoke to him.
That was 10 or 23 o’clock. The pulmonologist call paged. Everything started to go wrong, and it does not look like Smal survive. It’s called Code (Code = medical emergency). They began the fifth and final CPR. I was right next to his bed. I looked, and imagine the earlier codes that I have is when people have lost loved ones. I prayed to God. I watched my husband die. All my knowledge and skills as a nurse when it came to his own, I am helpless, hopeless, weak, tired, poor, sad, angry, hurt, cold, warm, and losing balance. You can not stand on my feet because I was so numb, I dropped to the ground. At this point, I felt it my pee. My body fell to the ground because I could not restrain myself. They said that this was the end. Sweet, loving, wonderful husband Smal Aboubakar Abbot had been dead for 0047 (00:47) and Friday, September 19, 2008. He was only 27 years old. I started to look for the answers to some of my questions in the accident. The first thing I learned is that my husband has been hit by a drunk driver, Wayne Arthur Matabar while parked on the shoulder. Mr. Matabar have geared up the left lane onto the shoulder of the road hitting the car from behind my husband. It has already been put through all this misery by a drunk driver. He was parked on the shoulder wide enough to hold two cars to be safe, and because someone made the choice to drink and drive, that “under the influence”, a “drive while intoxicated,” took the precious flower, the one that I the botanical garden.
I started thinking about the dreams had not been together. I started thinking about life lived as a person. I thought the number of children we would have liked, and the names we have chosen. I thought of the day we talked about life and death. I thought, my favorite line every time you get angry at him; “Honey, do not be angry, and refused to talk to me. I could go on and something terrible could happen. We do not want this to be the last word, or actions toward me.” The only good thing I could find and decided to call their own lost in the wind. Smal was three classes away from a bachelor’s degree in accounting. He majored in accounting and business administration was his manor. I thought of the day we talked to the neighbors on the porch of her CPA exam and what they hoped to achieve. He would have completed in December 2008, but a drunk driver crashes in our lives and taken September 19, 2008. I thought about his parents, his brothers and his sisters and the respect and love they share with each other. I thought it was his faith and love for God. I started to think life is so unfair to me. The space, in my heart, I do not know when I will ever spend. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to get over the mental image Smal’s death. I can not get over the last resuscitation. No one is trying to protect you from the pain and mental anguish. The nurses and doctors expected him to be brave and stand by and watch, because he was a fellow colleague. What is not realized, I was on the other side of the table and did not work. All I kept hearing was that of a nurse, and she can handle it. No one treats the death of a love one, especially her husband.
Today I am 26 and still be 27. So I decided two days, the story is another who has experienced something of a tragic 26-year-old; to share with you. His mother and three children died in a repeat offender and mine was a first timer. There is no time that is acceptable to drink and drive; no time to “drive under the influence of” acceptable to “drive while intoxicated” or. Each of injury and death caused by intoxicated or DWI is completely preventable. The people that are driving on the roads and streets that belong to someone. No one outcast. They are like you. When you’re drunk, if damaged, and decide that this is the choice to drive, think about your unique situation. Ask yourself, who am I? If you start to get an answer that is a father, a son, a daughter, an aunt, an uncle, a cousin, a handsome, a grandson, a friend or any name that you associate with your link, I want you to remember that there will be consequences of its activities significant impact on the lives of those around you and the lives of those who are injured or killed in action. See all those roads and streets you could see yourself. I pray that the man who will never experience the pain and the pain hit Smal and his family that the family experiences daily. I pray that another woman, mother, father, brother, sister, in-laws and will never lose someone as valuable as someone Sma ‘driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated or someone. ”

For example, some states tax collection, while others do not. BAC of 0.08% or more unique and universal to all States.

DUI or DWI remains a serious problem that the national tragically affected thousands of victims every year.
