When someone drinks too
much and then drives, it's the silenc
that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and people you don't ever
know. But they're all people you
could save.
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me call a
cab." Or, "Sleep on my couch

Maybe it would keep him awake
long enough to have an accident.
But that's about all.
The best way to prevent a
drunk from becoming a dead drunk
is to stop him from driving.
Speak up. Don't let silence be
the last sound he hears.
