much and then drives, it's the silence
that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and people you don't even
know. But they're all people you
could save.

maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me calla

coffee never made anyone sober.
Maybe it would keep him awake

is to stop him from driving.
Speak up. Don't let silence be
the last sound he hears.
