Now’s powerful photo may someday save lives

Our Facebook page had nearly 200 comments as of Monday morning, most of them supporting our decision to use the photo. Here are just a few of them:

Rochelle Scrivener – I’m glad my 11 year old saw this.

I want this image ingrained in his head if it means it’ll pop up when or if he’s 16 and wants to get behind the wheel intoxicated…

Lisa Aren – Losing one reader -pfftttt -Gaining many that may learn a lesson from this ad and live -priceless!

Andy Schellenberg – Oh darn guess your daughter may not drink and drive when she’s older. Thank the paper when she hits 30.

Ginger Leah Gervais – No need to sugarcoat how dangerous drinking and driving is. These children will be adults someday. The earlier the awareness, the better in my opinion.

Thom Marshall – Very powerful and poignant message. Sometimes in your face messages are necessary, this one sure is.
