My name is Bill Baldridge. I was injured in a drinking and driving accident on Oct. 19, 1996 and hospitalized for 22 months. Two of my friends lost their lives and I eventually lost both legs due to this event. This devastation and sorrow happened in the blink of an eye and was caused by one careless decision to be irresponsible when using alcohol.
I truly believe that sharing my story is my God given purpose. The power of communication has helped me to heal from the loss of my friends and former self. I recognize this an opportunity to help other victims by giving them an opportunity to share their stories and warn against being irresponsible when impaired.
