This month’s challenge is for us parents, friends, or anyone you can pass this off to that is an adult or old enough to drive.
A friend of mine posted last night on social media that she stopped someone leaving the same bar who was highly impaired and getting in his car to please consider an Uber and that it wasn’t worth it. He stopped, agreed, and left his car. She could have saved a life….or several last night. It gave me the idea to do a challenge for the parents this month. I appreciated her actions so much as this is someone who could have killed my kids, my family, my friends, or anyone important to me. She was right – someone can make a difference every day.
So easy. So simple. Incredibly important.
My grandfather was hit by a drunk driver when he was young on Christmas Eve. I only knew him as a paraplegic and that has stuck with me forever knowing why his life was so challenging. I am hyper vigilant when we go out and now no longer drink much myself. So this month maybe if all of us Moms, Dads, friends, neighbors or even strangers in a bar (like my friend) adopt this challenge through December we can make huge difference in someone’s Mom, child, friend or grandparent even being around to celebrate a holiday season. Then, perhaps make it a trend to carry into 2017.
