Do You Have The Courage to Intervene?

We see a friend who’s had too much to drink at a party walking to their vehicle and we don’t stop them.

We watch as a family member picks up a phone call behind the wheel.

We let a friend leave our house to drive to the store after smoking some marijuana “because it’s just down the street.”

These things happen countless times every single day, and they frequently end with arrests, shame, humiliation, huge fines, and many times these choices end in injury and death. Whatever the outcome, people are usually left wishing that they had done something more.

If only I had stopped that friend from driving drunk.
If only I had said something when the driver picked up that phone call.
If only I told my friend to keep their marijuana use at home.
If only I had the Courage To Intervene.

One courageous voice can stop one deadly choice.

Have the Courage to Intervene.

Silence Doesn’t Save Lives

It was a beautiful day in May when Evan and her fiancé attended a friend’s wedding. It was a time of joyful celebration, and everyone was having a wonderful time dancing, laughing, and drinking champagne. When Evan and her fiancé decided to leave, it was obvious that they had had a little too much to drink. However, nobody stopped them from getting in their car and driving away. The bride later said that she had thought about saying something—but she didn’t act on it. If she would have, maybe Evan would still be alive today…

Because nobody stopped them from leaving the wedding intoxicated, Evan’s fiancé crashed their car into a pole, killing her and injuring himself.

Drunk, drugged, and distracted driving (the 3 D’s) kill thousands of people each year. While awareness, education, and legislation help to address this epidemic, there is a more effective and even simpler solution: SPEAK UP!
