Faces of Tragedy Book
After years of working with victims of drunk driving, Director of Victim Services Pat Larson compiled their stories in a book called "Faces of Tragedy." The book lets families and convicted drivers tell how their lives have changed since their crashes. The purpose of the book is to touch people emotionally about how lives can be changed forever because of someone's bad decision. We're hoping that these stories touch the hearts of anyone that reads it and makes them consider the tragic effects that result in these crashes.
