Another One

I was listening to the news on the radio this evening when I heard the name Brad Agerup, teacher at Mariner H.S. He was one of thebilde four people who were killed by a drunk driver Sunday. The news shook me. In the late seventies, Brad and both I worked in the minor league system of the San Diego Padres. Over the years we …would bump into each other at Athletic Trainer Association meetings, and functions.

It’s been many years since I last saw Brad, but reading of how his students felt about him, moved me. Along with Brad, his wife Melissa, and their two neighbors, also lost their lives.
Brad and Melissa have left behind 16 and 18 year old Daughters. These girls have had both their parents ripped from their lives in an instant. I am so pissed right now. This marks three people that I have known who are no longer with us because of drunk driving.
In 1981, I was arrested for drunk driving. I thank God for that, because it stopped me from ever doing it again. I thank God it happened before I killed someone or myself.  I pray that  Matthew McDonald, the driver who did this will never be able to do it again. If you drink and drive, please stop!
