    Life is precious and every human being is valuble. Sometimes we get side tracked with negative conversations,negative up bringing,and negative
    influences which leads us to believe that life is insignificant! However,
    when we realize life is powerful,dynamic,interesting,exciting and is the
    wonder of the world we will place more value and respect on life ! That is
    we will become more considered of others by not placing them in danger
    due to reckless behavior! Drunk driving is more than having fun it is actually putting peoples lives at risk !In a matter of seconds your life
    can be turned up-side down for all parties involvled ! Take precautions
    and do the next best thing. Happy Holidays. Abdul Majeed Askia
