I think you've hit on something here. When I look back on it, we weren't tragically destroyed when our friends killed themselves drinking and driving because the adults around us took a low key, common sense approach to the facts. It was what they like to call "a teachable moment". How awful Bob died! Do you see what happens when you get plowed and drive? Don't be like Bob.
