That is my point of view. As a veteran of two wars, I have earned the right to free speech. I have seen death and I have caused death in my more than 20 years of service. So does this death matter to me? No, only the actions that lead up to it that may have harmed my family matters. She chose to take her life. She chose to hurt those around her. She chose to make me angrier about those who drive impaired. You call me names. You judge me. You say I have no right. Look who's being narrow minded and judgmental. Google Bucky Lake. I witnessed it. Sorry you lost a friend, not sorry about the death.
