    You put it perfectly @cali~jenn
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Live Genuinely

    Well said! Any loss of life is a tragedy regardless of the circumstances. And I was a fan of his along with many others so of course his death is mourned by us, but mostly by his family and friends who are trying to find a way to deal with this.

    @jmill79 yes he would still be mourned and have sympathy from his family, friends and fans. He is getting bashed in his death, don't worry it is not all sympathy. But I wonder, since his actions were stupid which caused his and his friends death, but I shouldn't mourn him, should I also not mourn my friend who commited suicide in February. His decision killed him, just like Ryan's decision killed him and his friend. I mourn for all 3 of them and will continue to do so, I don't care who they are a life is precious and a life lost is heart breaking!

    No one will ever take away your right to mourn whomever you want. That's not what I'm talking about, any you and anyone else can deal with it in your own way. What I'm keep seeing is "hope someone else learns this lesson". This is a "lesson" that has been taught and repeatedly and blatantly disregarded for decades, FOR DECADES!!!!!

    I knew a guy who lost both his twin daughters (riding in the back seat, he and his wife in the front) in a wreck caused by a repeated drunk driver. I had a good friend in high school who is paraplegic from drunk driving. I had another friend in high school, killed while drunk driving. Just in the last year or so a couple in their 50's from the next town over, driving home from a night out, both killed by a drunk driver. And I'm sure throughout the country these stories continue in the hundreds.

    I'm sorry I can not have any sympathy for this recklessness and complete disregard for everyone else's life on the road. But just because I see it this way takes nothing away from the way you or the way anyone else wants to feel about it and their right to mourn. I'm simply just sick of the needlessness of it all.

    This is the difference between SYMPATHY...and ...EMPATHY! It doesn't sound like much..but it's a huge difference.

    Sorry @jmill79..I don't want your head to hurt! You are very correct in ALL your feelings written here...there is no sympathy for anyone who takes anothers life while driving drunk. I think we can ALL empathize for their families without sympathy. I'm thinking that's what a lot of people meant. No worries anyway...I also have a nephew who is now a quadriplegic because of an alcohol involved accident. I don't know why people can't learn...or want to. Sigh...

    I agree and am sorry for both of your experiences with this. It is awful and I say I hope somebody will learn from this and hopefully more than just 1. I see what you mean by everyone should already know but unfortunately it isnt that way. Nobody ever thinks it will be them, sad! I do think this will at least open up a few more eyes before they make the same mistakes. Even more sad about this is I guess he had 2 duis already and over 20 tickets? Not sure if that is right but he was more than double the legal limit my husband said I guess.
