Here'* yet another reason that I stay sober and straight when I go to parties.
I just found out this morning that Stephen Boston, an acquaintance of mine and a good friend to a lot of people passed away on Sunday. He was drunk, riding in a car with a drunk driver. They hit a tree. The driver walked away.
Now I am sitting here missing classes because I am too upset to function. I can't believe this happened. Because Stephen was a graduate from my former high school. The school is small (less then 250 students), so we all know each other. Stephen was a graduate of the class before me.
He was 20 years old.
For the love of God, people, learn from others' mistakes. Don't drink and drive, it'* dumb. If nothing else, think of the possibility that you'd hurt someone else. Also, think how many people would have to hurt just becuase you wouldn't give up your keys.
