Dear Ben,

Do you know – really know – how fortunate you are to not only be alive, but to have suffered NO life long ailments from your motorcycle accident? My son, Kris, was riding home from work on September 4, 2004 when a person with a BAC of .217 turned left in front of him. Kris was wearing all of his protective gear, including his helmet, titanium reinforced gloves, and reinforced jacket. According to both the police report and a crash re-enactment professional, Kris was traveling below the posted speed limit. He still couldn’t avoid the car. As a result of the crash, Kris suffered major head trauma and died 2 days later.

I’m not totally sure of why I felt the need to share all of this with you except to do all that I can to emphasize the importance of wearing safety gear. No, it didn’t help Kris, but coming up against someone with a BAC of .217 is an event with few survivors.

Kris was twenty-three years old, and as a Senior Airman in the Air Force, he served in Iraq from January – May 2004. He was willing to return if it meant that a person with a family wouldn’t have to go. Kris joined the Air Force so his life would make a difference. I want to do all that I can to carry out his wish.

You can help by encouraging motorcyclists to be as safe as possible – that includes wearing protective gear. You can also spread the word, “Don’t drink and drive.”

I wish you well in the upcoming season, and safe driving throughout your life.
