DARE should spend more time on alcohol - the gateway drug.
This story needs to live on forever. This stuff should be taught in fucking high schools as part of the English or Health curriculum. But no the government wastes their time on anti-marijuana bullshit. PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THE REAL FACE OF DRUG RELATED VIOLENCE.
I've heard about this girl before. Such a sad story.
Serious don't drink an drive, this is why God invented marijuana
We have all had a bit too much to drink. God help us all.
wow poor girl, and the guy that hit her was a teenager I feel bad for him now s well,
Alcohol ruins lives and yet the government is ignorant enough to wage war on drugs. Newsflash: there's no substance worse than alcohol.
I don't know what we should do, prohibition never worked and would not work again either, but we need to do something. So many lives ruined: girl crippled for life, two people dead, one another is left to live with guilt for the rest of his life.
I couldn't agree more. My sister was permanently disfigured by a drunk driver. That driver lost his life in the crash. Drunk drivers are a danger to themselves and everyone who shares the road with them. I wish the penalties were a lot stiffer for repeat offenders.
What a callous comment Nick you fucking prick...
Hey kids, if you drink and drive you could end up ugly, like this lady here. Look at her face! What would your friends think!?

WALL OF TEXT
it's intended as satire, dramatizing and exposing what I perceive to be the root thought of such PSA-style campaigns. Things like this are often preceded by the statement "not everyone dies in car accidents..." or similar, implying that an otherwise somewhat normal life with a mangled face (assuming breathing, eating, and drinking functions are not significantly impaired, which they don't seem to mention) is far worse than death. Ad campaigns such as these rely on shock, superficiality, and general silliness to get across a message which should be damn obvious to begin with: controlling the propulsion of an unnaturally fast moving shell built from glass and steel stakes over a hard and abrasive surface while surrounded by many other such shells which move in an unpredictable manner is NOT a task to perform after temporarily rendering yourself a mental and physical cripple. I suppose it is not so bad though, as those whose behavior would be significantly altered by such tactics are likely not capable of evaluating risks logically in the first place, and the ad campaigns didn't create the societal bullshit that they seek to capitalize on.
Anyways, thanks for replying to what I said, even if you despise me for it; I am always happy to see a reply to my comments. I have no qualms about being called callous fucking prick.
This is so terrible. I wonder if the victim is glad to be alive, or if she would rather to have perished...I wonder if she has constant pain, or if she's pain-free. I wonder if she has found more meaning in her life since the accident, if she has become a miraculously grateful and positive person, or if this has had a terrible effect. May God bless her and guide her and heal her and her family, ameen.
no message necessary, just a reminder
This will haunt me for a long time, but I'm glad I stumbled it. I hope this makes people think.
