  • Extinguished

    Courtney Spalding held a candle in front of her as her obituary was being read. It was tough listening to someone describe how she had "died."

    "I really started crying when I heard my own [obituary] because it was something my parents would have to go through," she said.

    Spalding, a 17-year-old junior, hadn't really died, but she was one of the students chosen by the Grim Reaper to participate in the Ghost Out Wednesday at Marion County High School.

    The Ghost Out was a reminder of the risks of drinking and driving.

  • Grim Reality

    Mothers Against Drunk Driving estimate that 11,773 died as a result of drunk driving accidents in 2008 in the United States.

    That's more than 31 percent of the 37,261 traffic fatalities reported that year.

    In 2006, 1.46 million drivers were arrested for driving while intoxicated in the U.S.

    These statistics give us a reason to understand why MADD is so passionate about its mission, but unfortunately, sometimes statistics don't help us understand the consequences of a bad decision.
