Would you *purchase* a hat with glow in the dark ears that lasts all night but increase the cost of the hat by $6-$15 (depending on ear size)?

Today, the day before St. Patrick's day, I buried the man I love most. Tomorrow, on what used to be a fun green holiday, I spend flying back to my very empty house. Wednesday I go to court to watch my husband's killer plead "not guilty." I go to show him what pain he has caused with his thoughtless actions. 

My husband was killed by a drunk driver. As someone who has always been proud of their Irish heritage (I am only 3rd generation) I feel the need to address this holiday that we celebrate with lots of green and alcohol. 

Do NOT drink and drive.

I repeat.

DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.

There is no reason. There is no excuse. Many services are available for free transport back home on St. Patrick's day. Please use one of these if you do not have a designated driver. If you see someone clearly drunk trying to get in their car and drive, please take their keys, give them to the bartender, and call a cab or other service. They can get their car in the morning. If you cannot take their keys then call the police and tell them where you are, what direction they are headed,  the license plate number (if you caught it) and the make and model of the car. Almost everyone has a camera on their phone, a picture is very useful in these cases.

We are all taught over and over to not drink and drive. We all know just how stupid it is. Many people still choose to do it because they believe they are better drunk drivers than all the others that cause tragedies like my own. 

YOU ARE NOT A BETTER DRIVER!

You were lucky, very lucky. There is NO REASON to risk your life, the life of anyone in the car with you, and the life of anyone who happens to be nearby as you are driving. Every single life is precious, if you will not at least think of the stranger you may kill than think of yourself. Is it worth prison time just to not have to pay for a cab? Is it worth the disgust that everyone you know will feel for you when they find out you killed someone? Is it worth ruining all your future plans? 

Is it worth dying for?
