This post is very difficult for me to type. It’s been 10 years since my brother, Renaldo, was killed by a drunk driver. He would have been 45 years old today. In some ways it feels like yesterday and in others, it feels like a lifetime ago. My brother had the most incredibly generous spirit with an brilliant sense of humor. I can’t help but to wonder how things would have been if he was still here…laughing and joking. Renaldo was the one who diversified my musical tastes and global views by teaching me that the world is bigger than the narrow American perspective. He had so many things left to accomplish and that alone is still very frustrating for me.
Life already has enough sudden tragedies…don’t add to them. You ALWAYS have a choice. Drunk driving is a poor choice. If you don’t have a designated driver or cab money, how about just sitting this one out?
