The Buda High School south of Austin staged a “Shattered Dreams” event every 15 minutes yesterday — that’s the rate a person dies at the hands of a drunk driver – and I applaud them for their attempt to curtail drinking and driving.
Students played the roles of both the drunk drivers and dead and injured victims, and other classes came out of class to watch the drama, which included students being lifted by air ambulance. Then those students were given these black t-shirts and were not allowed to speak for the rest of the day.
Officers from the Texas DPS, Hayes County police and fire fighters, and local hospitals and funeral homes assisted.
I just signed up another case Monday where my client was hit by a drunk driver and I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that the drunk is punished and that my client is fully reimbursed for his damages.
I am also supporting the Walk Like MADD on April 12th. MADD is one of my favorite causes.
