"To watch the film The Impact of Your Choice is to see lives arrested in pain."
"The impact is endless. "
David Wilson, of Bristol, remembers his 15-year-old daughter Erica, who died when the drunken teenager giving her a ride crashed in August 2005.
The girls in the car had all lied to their parents about staying over at different houses. He’d taught her the rules because he never wanted to get that
phone call in the night saying something had happened to her. “And then I got the phone call,” he said.

EAST PROVIDENCE – For some, there's a turning point in life
where an unanticipated event points them in a direction they couldn't
have imagined. If they're really fortunate, that direction has a profound impact on others as well.
For documentary filmmaker Deborah Hoch, the genesis of that event was a 2004 automobile accident 300 feet from her Seekonk home – one in
which she narrowly missed being a victim herself – and where the image of "someone's son laying there" continued to haunt her.
"I was the first one there," she said, "and after, I'd go to the window for months," the scene playing over and over in her head. The path she chose
to follow, a film about underage drinking from the perspective of both victims and perpetrators, eventually took form not so much by duty as by a
sense of outrage, and not so much by convention as by the concept that breaking with convention was the only way to deliver her message.
|Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority of Johnson and Wales University. I wanted to send you the pictures we took in November from the
event. Again thank you so much for coming and speaking and showing your film, Breast Health Awareness, you are a living inspiration and we
