I see the true impact of alcohol on families who have lost fathers, mothers, children, brothers or sisters to drunk drivers.  The statistics are staggering.  We, as a society have turned our heads by letting establishments continue to sell alcohol when we know they are selling to minors illegally, by giving DUI convicted drivers more and more chances to drive, by refusing to punish parents and adults for giving alcohol to minors, and by treating the abuse as a part of growing up.  It's ridiculous and no one becomes angry until alcohol is related to their own injury or the death of a family member.  If the same damages were being caused by the swine flu, our country would be in a state of panic and everyone latched inside their homes.
