Why I hate Memorial Day

People all to often see it as a reason to party and get drunk and why do I believe this.... it is because my dad was celebrating too much and was drinking home drunk and went and drove over a cliff.
I missed out on a life with a dad and wonder what it is like to have a dad since I was 5 when he died I have no idea.
However the important thing is his death taught me that drinking and driving is never a good idea.

  • Any 3 day weekend sells itself as a time for people to get wasted. My dad saw every weekend as a time to get drunk. It sucks when your parents act like children.

  • I am sorry, but in a way i am the same way because when i was in High School one of my friends Mom got killed by a drunk driver and ever since then it opened my eyes how easily someone innocent can be killed. Around the Holidays i would rather stay home because you never know what crazy drunk is out driving and it scares me so bad.
