* A poem i found on the internet it sends shivers down my spine *

I went to a party, mom,
and remembered what you said,
you told me not to drink and drive, mom,
so i had a sprite instead,

I felt proud of myself, mom,
the way you said i would,
that i didn't drink and drive, mom,
though some friends said i should,

I made a healthy choice, mom,
and your advice to me was right,
the party finally ended, mom,
and the kids drove out of sight,

I got into my car, mom,
sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was comming, mom,
something i expected least,

Now i'm laying on the pavement, mom,
and i hear the policeman say,
'the kid that caused this wreck was drunk'
Mom, his voice seems far away,

My own bloods all around me, mom,
as i try hard not to cry,
i can hear the paramedic say, mom,
'this kid is gonna die! '

I'm sure the guy had no idea, mom,
while he was flying high,
because he chose to drink and drive, mom,
now i would have to die,

So why do people do it, mom,
knowing that it ruins lives?
and now the pain is cutting me, mom,
like a hundred stabbing knives,

Tell sister not to be afraid, mom,
tell Daddy to be brave,
and when i go to heaven, mom,
put 'DADDY'S GIRL' on my grave,

Someone should have taught him, mom,
that it's wrong to drink and drive,
maybe if his parents had, mom,
i'd still be alive,

My breath is getting shorter, mom,
i'm getting really scared,
these are my final moments, mom,
and i'm so unprepared!

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
