A few months ago, I learned I had a second cousin in Florida who was killed in a horrific car crash. She was on her way to a fun outing with her daughter when out of nowhere, a drunk driver (mid-afternoon on a weekday – not that there’s ever any appropriate time to drink and drive, but still) who was going the wrong way on the expressway hit her car head-on, killing her and gravely injuring her young daughter. The little girl persevered, came out of her coma and re-learned to walk and talk. She was recently in the news again because she just turned 5 years old and sadly, she still thinks her mother is coming back. Her courage and strength is inspiring, so I’d like to share this clip of her on the Florida news. Please keep Summer in your thoughts and prayers. Click here to see the news story about Summer’s 5th birthday. And please, please, if you’re going to drink, always have another mode of transportation set up ahead of time!

WOW… what an amazing little girl. Indeed, my prayers are with her.
😯 What J said. Praise God for Summer’s recovery so far from this. The video didn’t say anything about the drunk driver, but I really hope (s)he has learned big time from this. My condolences for your second cousin.
I don’t know what if anything the driver has learned… if you really want to know about her or the story, here is an article with more info: http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/article879595.ece
Thanks. I’ll take a look at it.
