Each day across the United States, 27 people are killed in drunk driving accidents.
That means 9,855 families are broken and torn apart every single year. One man from Arkansas knows that feeling all too well. Rick Ellis is the father of a six-year-old girl who will never come home again. Her life was cut painfully short by someone else’s indiscretion — someone else’s choice to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated.
His baby will never grow up, have sleepovers with her best friends, or graduate from high school because someone gambled with her life and lost.
But this was no stranger who took his daughter away. What Ellis has to say in the video below will stick with you forever.
