MADD walk at the Zoo

^^^My student Aniyah's sister was killed by a drunk driver.^^^

The MADD (Mother's Against Drunk Driving) walk was today and it was held at the Phoenix Zoo. We got to support a good cause while walking next to a bunch of animals. Not a bad way to spend my Saturday. Presley had the best time and I got to catch up with my mom and Christy. Jackson slept most of the way, but managed to see some animals and scarf down a mango smoothie and banana muffin at the end. That boy sure can eat. As we walked today, I saw a lot of support for those who have lost a loved one by a drunk driver. I shed a few tears and felt so deeply for these people. I am glad I got to help show my love today. It won't bring those victims back but it will help spread the very important message: "Don't drink and drive!"

  1. I'd have to say, Presley and Jackson are so cute! While your children couldn't understand the issue for now, they'd certainly get behind a good cause such as this. There could have been countless mothers, and fathers, that had lost their children due to the fact that a person thought they could drive when drunk. To think that these types of accidents are the most avoidable ones. You're right that spreading the message is the key to safety!
