Against drunk driving

Attention Bloggers
The Department of Transportation has asked American bloggers to spotlight the critical importance of staying sober behind the wheel this Independence Day. My cousin and her unborn child was killed by a drunk driver. I would like to mention that Patricia was in labor and being driven to the hospital when this horrible accident happened. There is no reason to drink and drive. Please remember while you are partying a family is driving to see family.

Together We Can Spread the Message
Stay Sober Stay Alive
July 4, 2010

1. Simply pledge your driving sobriety this Independence Day by noting your blog URL and blog name.

2. At the bottom of this “Blog Hop” you will see text in which you can grab the code for this McLinky. Simply click the link and copy and paste the code into your very own blog post’s HTML section. Then click “compose” and copy and paste this pledge, adding your own message to the top as I did above. Copy the pledge fromtogether we can stay alive” above.

3. Follow the host Hollywood Chic [-first on the linky-] of this Independence Day Pledge for more information on the Department of Transportation, Buzz Driving, and Stats.

Also an optional badge was created to spread greater awareness and linked to this pledge, please wear it proudly until July 5, 2010 when this pledge will close.

Great cause. I do not drink & drive. However, just like the Oprah "pledge" w/no texting... I'm not for signing one's name to something and sending it to Washington.... Things can get twisted and turned. I make this pledge, but don't feel the need to sign my name to anything.
We live with the EXTREME enviromentalists here. ie., want no driving, no fires to be put out,etc. I think so many folks have been told to "sign here" for the good of the enviroment and laws have been passed for various things based on this or that. Shady stuff happens, I know!
Hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

I'm very sorry about your family member. So sad.
I DO support this cause and will make my own button. I'm just not going to attach MY BLOG or MY NAME to something that can be twisted around to do "other things" than what it was intended for. I know this happens... sad.
