    Brittany's MP3 High Low


    "I started drinking and smoking marijuana when I was ten years old and now I'm fifteen years old.  I'd go into my parents liquor cabinet and have parties and invite my friends over whenever my parents were out-of-town.  We would see how much we could drink before we did something silly.  My best friend Susan was 18 years old.    One night, we decided to drive to the mall and hang out.  Susan was the only one with a drivers license.  That night Susan seemed kind of out-of-it, and I know I shouldn't have gotten into the car with her, but I didn't want to show that I was scared or chicken to drive with her.  I never knew that Susan had been arrested before for drunk driving.  She was my best friend but she never told me that.   Anyway, that night on the way to the mall, we had the radio blasting and we never heard the oncoming fire engine.  I can't remember exactly what happened, but I ended up in the hospital for 3 months with a broken pelvis and punctured lung.  My best friend Susan died at the scene.  I went through drug rehabilitation and I'm okay today.  But I will never forget what happened and I'll never party with drugs or alcohol again and I'll never drive with anyone who drinks and uses DRUGS!"

    I know exactly how you feel. You should always think twice about getting into a car with someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. I seems like you learned your lesson, I am sad that it had to happen that way for you. Bt hopefully you an use your experiance as a way to persuade others to do the right thing.
