This man decided to drink and drive and in return he put a young mans bright and promising future on hold. He changed this young mans life in more ways then any of us could ever imagine. Some negative and some positive. Yet, to this day, this man who committed this horrific crime has been free this whole time. Ultimately he will answer to the Lord for his actions, but let justice be served so that not only this young man and his family can feel some relief, but also so that he isn't out hurting other people. This mans actions and the Dr.'s initial diagnosis were no match for this young mans prayer warriors. Love you guys <3
