First, it is hard for me to be upset because you have always surprised me and printed my opinions - all of which have focused on the misuse of alcohol by college students at UF. You can be the "cool big brother," and I'll be the "I'm-telling-on-you-big sister." I want to emphasize how extremely thankful I am because the Alligator truly is a stage where I could potentially positively influence even just one student who reads my opinion to think twice before drinking irresponsibly. I understand that you were trying to write fairly, but please, please keep in mind that underage drinkers are the only people who can be underage drunk drivers, and they make up a large portion of alcohol-related fatalities in this state every year.

Thank you for acknowledging that my accident was horrible; it truly was terrible. On a lighter note, I still have the football Urban Meyer signed and sent to Shands at UF for me when I was in a coma from my accident back in 2006. Pretty sure I'll be sending it back to him.
