My name is Caitlin. I am now 27 years old. I felt invincible my whole life. Until the day of February 22/2009. I was 21 at the time and just doing “what most 21 year olds do.” I was out partying with my friends. The time passed the bars closed and my best friend and I went to grab something to eat to “sober up.” On our way home we had the music up and it was snowing pretty bad. Almost home and can’t wait to go to bed, the night took an unexpected turn. 30 seconds from my apartment I struck and killed a man. His name was Charles. He came through my windshield and died almost instantly. I held his head to tell him everything would be okay. He laid his head in my hands while gurgling in his own blood and passed away. Because of my selfish actions a little girl has to grow up not knowing who her father is. I have left a mother to never see her only son again. I have turned their family and my family upside down. For that reason I will live my life for Charlie and I promise to keep his memory alive to save others!
