These are just some things that I posted on myspace becuase of what's happend recently and in the past few months. I hope this makes you stop and think:
I just wanted to take some time and say this
In the past few months/years I have heard on the news and seen in the paper where someone I went to school with, hung out with, talked to or even just heard of...Has died in some way. What would you do if that was one of your best friends? All I'm trying to say is live every moment as if it was your last one cuz you never know when you'll leave this earth. I'll never understand why people close to us have to die or why our best friends have to die. But all I want to say is that I'm so glad that I have all of you as friends and I hope you all know that.
Denise Boykin, Stacey Hobgood, Brent Nachel, and the list goes on of people I went to school with and were friends with. And so young at that. All I ask is that all of you live life to the fullest and keep the ones you love and care about close to you.
I know I sound like I'm dying or something but I'm tired of hearing about someone I knew dying and wondering what would happen if that was me. So in closing I just want to say:
i hope what has happend these past few days has been a wake up call for everyone.
life truely is short.
dont make it shorter by making bad decisions.
dont drink and drive.
and dont take your next breath for granted.
(Lexington County) August 14, 2006 - A terrible lesson is being learned the hard way in Lexington County on Sunday - if you're driving, buckle up.
Four unrelated collisions spanning a mere sixteen hours killed five people Sunday, and three of the victims were less than 18 years old.
According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, there were a total of eight people riding in the four cars when each of them crashed. Three of the passengers were wearing seatbelts - and all three, though injured, survived. None of the four people killed were wearing seatbelts.
The first wreck, according to Highway Patrol, occurred at 2:30am. Authorities say Kyle Paradise, 17, of Lexington, went out of the westbound lane of I-20 and flipped several times, ejecting and killing the passenger, Brent Nachel, 20, also of Lexington.
Paradise is being charged with DUI Resulting in Death.
The second wreck happened a mere thirty minutes later. According to Highway Patrol, Donald Edward Schwartz, 16, of Lexington and James Edward Young, 16, also of Lexington, ran off Old Cherokee Road and hit a tree.
The driver, Schwartz, died at the scene. Young, who was ejected, was airlifted to Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. According to Highway Patrol, alcohol was also a factor in this wreck.
The third wreck took place at 2:55pm, also on I-20 westbound. According to the Highway Patrol, 49-year-old Kimberly Sims, of Decatur, Georgia came upon slow-moving traffic, swerved to avoid it, and flipped her car.
The passenger, 50-year-old Henry Louis Sims, also of Decatur, was not wearing a seat belt and died on the scene. Kimberly and another passenger, a child, sustained injuries and were taken to Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital. There is currently no word on either victim's condition.
The fourth wreck took place at 6:55pm. 28-year-old Andrea Kaiser was killed Sunday evening when the car she was driving ran off the road and hit a tree. The accident happened on Willis Rd. A news release states she died at the scene of multiple head and body trauma. It is unclear as to whether or not Kaiser was wearing a seatbelt.
The Highway Patrol is currently investigating the accidents.
