One of the hardest words i ever heard an acquaintance say was;" I dont believe it was her intention to kill my child, so i cant hate her. I mourn the
loss of my child.. She made a choice to drive, a poor choice, to have a few drinks and drive home.. Here it is okay.. Do you think the same would have
happened at home? "
Hearing those words hurts, knowing what those words meant hurts even more, realizing his cultural upbringing in Scandinavia influenced his words and
his mentality, but furthermore his will to take this to court even to the WhiteHouse if he has to.. Where i live its not just your responsibility to
act in a way that is respectful and tolerant, its every citizens duty to lecture those who cant take responsibility of their of actions..
A few dont realize our view on alcohol is zero tolerance, someone who might look and talk like a human, under the influence of alcohol becomes just
another primate.. You arent allowed to walk the streets drunk, nor drink in open places.. Why? It might sound harsh, even cruel.. But our state
protects the citizens and those who think the world is their for the taking, well they face the harsh reality of Society beating you into submission..
Were i live we know people will make poor choices, we regulate those choices, make new laws and even rules.. Our system is built on intention and
freewill that you make the right decisions.. And when someone makes a wrong decision, Adults will tell you;" Do you think this is right?
How one selfish act could change the course for the lives of a family,
A 72 year old woman made the choice as a child to drink and drive, and on 133rd st. Hawthorne a child didnt get to celebrate his second birthday on
I hope and believe in Mr. Kowal, fight, fight, fight.. Its something you done all your life, you have my support and backing..
The change comes when everyone is responsible for someones else poor choices..

Many people here know bits and pieces of my story, many don't. Some may remember my descent into depression and grief. My ex would gloat that he was
a better driver drunk than sober. For all my complaining to the courts, I still had to allow him to pick them up. Honestly I blame the courts and the
judge who over looked the fact he lost his license due to DUI as much as I blame him. I was threatened with contempt of court if I refused to allow
them to go with a visibly intoxicated man. I made a mistake, I feared losing custody, when I should have feared losing them more.
Justice was not served. He went on to father another child, I am left mere memories and photographs of my 3 angels.
