On Thursday my school, West Ranch High School, took part in Every 15 Minutes. I think it's a great idea, and impacted many people.

Wow..I had this going on today at my high school. I'm in West Ranch, and to think, that if any of that was real, it would be a total devastation.I learn a great lesson not to drink, text, or talk on the phone while driving. Never in my life, would I let this happen to my friends, or even myself.

Hello, I am Sharon and I go to Delphi Community High School. As of right now I am in 10th grade. I have heard SO much about this program and REALLY hope Delphi schedules a program one year so that I can see it or maybe even have the most amazing privilege to participate in it. I have had my own experiences being a victim of a drunk driving accident. (I don't drink but my dad was driving drunk.) If it wasn't for the airbag I probably would've gone through the windshield or hit my head on the dashboard. I thank go every day that I was not killed in this wreck. But, Delphi really needs to have this program come before I graduate. (:

This year, I am a junior, and my school, due to budget cuts, had to do this program with the Juniors and Seniors together. I really wanted to be a part of this program. And Im honestly still upset that I wasn't. But it really opened my eyes. And I "lost" a lot of friends and people that I knew that day. I hope they can raise the funds to do this next year. *please please*

Hi this is shiv from Bensalem high school in Bensalem pa 19020. I have watched your videos and I would love for you to come to my school because we are in a new program called students against destructive decision. It would help us get our message across if you could come and stage one of these incidents to show the kids what it really feels like. I don't know the chance you could come but it would be exceptional and I'd never be able to thank you enough.

I've been watching these videos recently and I would love for you guys to come to our school, Naperville North Highschool!

My little brother who was only 19 passed away on October 26th 2012 due to an alcohol related accident, the driver lived. We live in a small town, over 500 people went to his funeral. I'd REALLY like Every 15 Minutes to host an event ANYWHERE in our town...at the high school, at a park, anywhere! I think it would really help. My older brother would also love to speak at the event and share our story and try to encourage other teens to avoid drinking & driving. Thanks & RIP to all those in Heaven who lost their lives & I pray for the families who have losed a loved one, I know how hard it is.

I have recently seen the "Every 15 Minute" videos on youtube. It has changed my view on driving completely. I could not believe the shock I was in after seeing these videos. I love this idea and I am hoping to do something like this at my high school. I believe it could change a lot of students view and drinking and driving. Thank you for making a change.

Terrible,what happens to teens every year...I lost my friend to a drunk driver :(
All Car crash victims :(

My high school did this every year and it always made me emotional but recently I've started watching the E15 videos and I've got to say it hit me so hard last night that I broke down and led me to start writing a short story about drunk driving. Teens have such a bright future so why throw it all away by drinking and driving? Is it worth spending the next 20 years of life in prison? I've lost 2 friends Becuz of a drunk driver and its not a pretty site. Make the right choice, DON'T DRINK & DRIVE! Thank you and God bless!

My brother was killed by a drunk driver 19 years ago. I'm a big believer in EFM's ability to impact young people and change and save lives. I've had the honor of telling my story at a number of EFM events around the country. If you're hosting an event and are looking for a speaker, I would love to help. You can see one of my speeches at http://www.storychangers.org/. I'm willing to travel anywhere in the country to help. Keep up this important work! San Ramon, CA

Hello! I'm Alexis. I don't know if you will ever see this, but I would LOVE to have you come to my school. I believe this would be an eye-opener and help many people to see what Driving Under the Influence can cause. Union, MS

A few years ago my best friend told me that if you drink and drive you have to deal with the serious consequences but I did not listen to him! So on the night of my engagement party I went DUI, I was in the hospital and the next day I could not remember anything including my fiance`e it was heartbreaking but I am under severe physical therapy now and happily pregnant with my first child! 25 years old now yay me!

I was in the program my 11th grade year and I took the pledge. I will never drink and drive. I lost a friend that week, she was in the car with a drunk driver she had no choice it was her mom... I miss her every day.. Last week I talked to my principal and asked him if we could do a assembly on Drinking and Driving. Next week I talk to the entire school on the problem. Thank you people at Every 15 Minutes. I never thought drunk driving killed so many people each day. Clarkston, WA

Unlike pretty much everyone who has wrote something in this guest book I haven't participated in a every 15 min program, Back in 2001 when i was going through my EMS class we only did a drink driving senerio crash involving a car of teens going to their prom and a family on it's way home from their 8 yr old girls birthday dinner and put it on for the Jr and Sr yrs in the 3 high schools in the county 3 weeks before prom, it had a deep impact just for the students to see some of their friends being pulled out of the vehicles and either be taken away by ambulance, helicopter or police officer then the biggest hit to them came while watching the zipper close up on the 8 yr old girl to which it had the desired effect of a reduction in DD related accidents.I for one think this program is great and even if it were only to save 1 life then it too has had an effect.Now within the past 6 months we have had 3 fatal wrecks involving high school students, I have a 15 yr old freshman two 9 yr olds and a 3 yr old so i'll be conversing with the school principals in hope of getting this program out here and hopefully we can stop this from happening for realThankyou again for all you do and teach our kids.

I graduated 7 years ago and I still have people from my senior class talking about this program. My brother was a freshman my senior year so my entire family was involved with the program. It made a huge impact on alot of people.
