The speaker really changed my thinking on driving. In a way the group really bonded, which was great.
How there was a speaker here who was affected by a crash that helped me learn better.
I like the most how you told everyone the story! It was very hard to sit through! For you to have the strength to tell everyone this I really admire you! Thank you so much! It really opened my mind.
Was how I could relate to Pam. Thank you so much Pam you have no idea how much this has changed my way of thinking. I can confess to getting in a car with someone who has been drinking and not putting on a seatbelt, and this has made me realize how my mom could get a phone call from my mistake.
I liked being able to listen and really picture and feel how she was feeling and apply it to how I will always be a safe driver.
The story. It made me promise myself to be a safer driver and never let my family experience this.
