BRANDON TELLS HIS STORY
Brandon Silveria tells his story of the terrible price he has paid for a stupid choice he made when he was seventeen. Brandon had a few drinks at party, managed to drive his friends home, then wrapped his car around a tree. He spent two and a half months in a coma, and several more years in rehabilitation. His speech is slurred, his walk is unsteady, his memory is permanently impaired. Most of all, you'll see how many lives can be changed forever by one irresponsible decision. (2004, 28 Min.)
