Family, Friends React After Triple-Fatal Interstate Crash

Forgiveness can happen when people stop being angry or hurt long enough to take a look at the whole subject.  A young man is accused of getting behind the wheel and driving drunk.  Families are now trying to cope with the loss and the anger caused by this crash. 

It is normal and expected to react the way they are but this damages them, robs them of grieving worthy of the lives gone.  While they could be sharing memories and beginning their healing, they are trapped spending their energy hanging onto the anger.  We can all understand how they feel the way they do but few of us have ever had to feel it for ourselves.

Losing someone you love is hard enough under natural circumstances.  When another human is the cause, it is almost unbearable.  Yet in this case, this driver was not just some drunk behind the wheel.  He is unique among the population.  He has PTSD which is caused only one way.  It took a traumatic event in his own life to cause it.  He was not thinking right by reports and used alcohol to help him cope with the symptoms.  There has to be justice because everyone with PTSD does not decide to drive drunk, so this was something he decided to do.  Justice requires all the facts to be considered but for the families, knowing all the facts may help them begin to heal.
