LAKELAND, GEORGIA – “Many people will remember the approximate date and time of the first mission of the SpaceX and NASA to the International Space Station in upcoming years. They remember 9/11, but possibly not sure of the exact year, since it is remembered by its month and day. My family has June 26th, 2009, 12:21 a.m. forever burned into their memories because that was the exact moment that my brother-in-law Steve Dunn and Jesus Antonio Resendiz-Banales were killed by a drunk driver, and Clint Talley was injured,” said Carol Moore, a MADD South Georgia volunteer. “Four families – Dunn, Resendiz, Talley and the DUI driver – were brought together for life-changing reasons, because someone chose to ignore her responsibility to keep herself safe while on the road, and chose to exercise a lack of responsibility for others safety while she was driving. None of us want you to make a decision to drink and drive ever again!”
