"I killed a man."

“Matthew Cordle has been sentenced to 6.5 years in prison with no chance of early release and a lifetime driver’s license suspension. As Matthew promised, he plead guilty and took responsibility for the horrible crime that ended Vincent Canzani’s life. Because I said I would recorded and released Matthew’s confession video with the hope that it would convince others to put down the keys… Don’t make the excuses Matthew made. Make the promise to never drink and drive and post it to social media with #SaveYourVictim.

“Since the day Matthew messaged our Facebook page for the first time on August 9th, I have grown to know him. He calls me on a regular basis from jail. I can tell you that he is remorseful for what he has done. That remorse will never bring back Vincent Canzani, but it has driven him towards a lifelong mission to prevent drinking and driving. While I am digusted by Matthew’s actions on June 22nd, I am proud of his promise to take responsibility and his conviction to see that promise through.”

Wow.  I don't think I'd have the cojones to do that.
