THE STORY:

My life was changed forever on July 14, 1980. My oldest sister, Angie, was tragically killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver.  As a young child, I had a difficult time understanding what was going on. Little did I realize that a person I loved and admired was never coming home. My family and I have suffered through difficult times as a result of her death, but in the end, it has brought us closer together. Throughout the last 36 years, I have often used the Serenity Prayer as a way to help navigate through these difficult times. "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Although I wish I could bring Angie back, I  know that is not possible. I have learned to trust God and use this tragedy in positive ways. Every successful thing I do in life is dedicated to her memory.  That is why I have decided to participate in the M.A.D.D. 5K Walk in Atlanta. I want to honor Angie's memory and raise money in hopes of preventing other families from suffering through the horrific tragedy that my family has gone through. Please consider supporting me in this event!
