a year later...
It has been a year and 5 minutes exactly since I was hit by Justin Hicken's car. He was under the influence of heroin at 7:15 in the morning when he hit me. In honor of this year anniversary (and whenever you see this post) do something to fight against drugs and driving under the influence.
I'm happy to be alive and I don't want sympathy for what happened a year ago, but I want everyone to remember that drugs don't only affect the user. It just isn't worth the risks the user takes, no matter what. People make really irrational decisions when they are under the influence. They can hurt someone else like Justin Hicken did or they can hurt themselves. Some nice people died from overdose in my hometown last summer and it was so sad.
DON'T DO DRUGS. DON'T DRIVE DRUNK. DON'T DRIVE WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE EVER.
