This story is truly empowering. One of my best friends at Cornell went to Shenendehowa High School and knew of the victims of this tragedy. As Shannon said, our generation used social media to unite and rally for a cause. May the victims rest in peace and may those who have heard of the tragedy never stop tweeting, and never forget the horrors of drinking and driving.

I pledged to never drink and drive. The question is, have you?
