Finding Me
A numberof years ago I read a memorial to a young woman killed at the hands of a drunk-driving boyfriend. The memorial was written by her sister, and the obvious agony she was going through really affected me.

I am, by profession, a screenwriter, and knew then I that had to write a film based on that story - as well a few others I read - in hopes I could do my small part to end the slaughter brought on by teens and alcohol. As I wrote, the story grew to include other teen issues very much in the news, and specifically bullying and youth violence, both of which have their own heavy toll. I titled the story Finding Me, and after 4 long years, it is finally in pre-production with a wonderful cast and lots of enthusiasm.

This is a story of sibling loss.

Hello Alex
I could give you a storey but it would be a weepy , living with the love of your life and going on a journey with them when they are given the news that they have got that horrible disease , the highs and the lows sitting in waiting rooms shaking and being sick when going for results to scans , watching a lovely woman fade away in front of you and not being able to help her , a journey I would not wish for anyone but so many have been on.

Look forward to seeing your film

hi alex good luck with the film these horros need to be shown wether that will deter drink driving is another matter i doubt it but it's good that you are trying like mart and other friends on here we have our own heartbreaking stories and 4 days after Darren died my grandaughter was knocked down and left for dead in the road 28 bones broken 3 fractures in her skull we are one of the lucky families and she survived 6 months in hospital and is now recovering if you can stop one person from causing such devistation it will be a job well done
love hazel
