My older sister did drugs and alcohol for years and she passed away in a car accident along with the other driver one night while under the influence. Drugs and alcohol impact the body but they also impact those around us. I’m above the influence for my younger sister and for my parents who both were affected by my older sister’s actions. I choose to use these experiences and turn them into something good. I hope that my story will impact others and inspire them to rise above. As it has helped me rise above. If you have a loved one who struggles, or you are a loved one who struggles, you are not alone and you have the power to make a difference in your life and others’ lives one step at a time.
