Candy Lightner -Women's History Month
Candy Lightner's 12 year old daughter was killed by a drunk driver, and as a result, she founded Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Candy is a strong and inspirational being for being able to turn something tragic into something incredible. MADD was a great organization to educate, inform, and change society!
Today, there are MADD chapters in all 50 states, as well as international affiliates. The goals are to educate, prevent, deter, and punish.
Candy is active in lectures, speeches, writings, and appearances. She speaks out at events, and contributes to women and children.
She's also written a few books, articles, and has a movie out about MADD!
Go, Candy!! =)
