Prom awareness 2008!



This is a serious video that Union County High School did as a project with the County Fire Department. Every teen should see this, especially with prom season approaching. Of course, every teenager thinks he/she is invincible and this won't happen to them...

powerful, unfortunately, many teens will not be impressed. Immaturity can only be cured with age.

Sigh...I know the teens won't be impressed, but maybe their parents will be. If it saves just one.....

What a powerful video. I know some kids won't think it applies to them, but it does. May prom season be safe for our future leaders. Excellent post. Have a great day. :)

Sorry, put this comment on the wrong post, :P!

I have had two personal friends that were killed on prom night my senior year (they were hit by trying to "beat" the train after drinking) as well as a friend and co-worker who died drinking and driving from my own home in SC after a dinner party (we took her keys away but she had a 2nd set). To top it off the car she hit head on happened to be carrying our immediate, elderly next door neighbors, a very tragic story.

I will always show these types of videos to my kids in hopes that at some point they "get it" and don't make these same mistakes.

Bravo to Union County for a well done video. May all the teens out there "get" this.

Thanks for the message! It can never be shown too many times.
