September tries its best to have us forget summer. -Bern Williams
So I’m sure by now nearly everyone has heard about the guy who confessed/claims to having killed a man by driving drunk. Well, naturally the backlash of this has started and this promises to be another train wreck that no one can look away from. One that I’m sick of already.
And it hasn’t even been more than 2 days since I heard about it. I wasn’t going to write about it at all, but then I started talking to myself about it. And you know that usually ends up with me playing both sides of the argument in my head. 🙂
First off when I saw the video my reaction was more along the lines like I thought this was some commercial put out there to keep people from driving after drinking. Then I read up a bit more on it and my second reaction was well, that sucks.
And as of this morning I just groan when ever I hear/see clips concerning this incident. The people on the other side of this whole mess are now taking to the spot light trying to paint this guy as someone who is trying to get ahead of the curve ball. Which part of me agrees with.
People don’t do things without a reason. Even unselfish acts can be based in something selfish (we just don’t admit it out loud).
Which begs the question- why did he do this?
Which leads to- why are they responding to it?
I’ve heard of 15 minutes of fame/infamy. But this is getting…old.
