Day 53 – 2012

I am so proud of my wonderful husband who today, for the 4th time, was honored with the M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Century Award for the arrest and conviction of 107 DUI’s last year. This is the least amount he has had for being recognized, one year getting 257… because his shift does not include Friday and Saturday anymore, and that is when most drunk drivers are on the roads.

The ceremony was so wonderful and over 150 law enforcement officers were recognized for their efforts in helping to reduce the number of DUI related deaths last year. I love the mission of M.A.D.D. and feel for all those who have lost loved ones to such a preventable and hideous crime. I am so grateful to all the officers who make it a big priority on their watch to remove these offenders from the streets. I am sure each one of us could have  been saved by one of these drunk drivers being removed from the streets while we are driving our innocent families around. God bless you all for doing your job!
