Making Positive Choices (Educational PSA)

Picture 7
Sheri Lyn Goddard a member of VVNG, shared the following,
“Tragically up here in the High Desert there have been many deaths from automobile accidents, thirteen months ago my 17 year old son was one of them.

My son, Michael Schmoll was one of those amazing kids who was full of life, always willing to lend a hand, always smiling and laughing; he truly loved his life, his family, his girl and his friends.

At 8:30 in the morning, March 17th, 2012 Mivhael decided to take the car and go for a ride…he didn’t make it a mile from home before crashing into a tree and was killed. Our lives will never be the same

I am sharing this video created by my fiance for an education class with hopes that maybe one teenager will slow down, make better choices or think before they act. Please share this with any teenager you may know; it might just save a life!”

  1. Thank you for sharing this video. It means a lot to our family and Michael’s friends that as many people as possible see this video. Teenage drivers are risk takers and they think they are invincible, Yet life is fleeting and this can happen to anyone. Our family will never be the same without Michael and we miss him terribly. Thank you for all of the kind words and prayers.
