Make The Promise

In Honor of Adam – And You

I promise:               

  1. Never to ride in a car without using a seatbelt.
  2. Never to drive too fast, because where I’m going will be there, whether I’m 5 minutes early or fifty minutes late.
  3. Never to drive after drinking, even the smallest amount, because I cannot understand how impaired I may be.
  4. Never to drive after putting anything in my body that may limit my ability to think, understand and react.
  5. Never to text while I drive, because the message is never more important than my life.
  6. And, perhaps hardest of all, to stop my friends when they try to do any of the above.  Take away their keys; call their parents; call a cab; wrestle them to the ground, if necessary.  Whatever it takes.

Finally, thinking of Adam and his great promise to the world, I pledge to do the following (please make a promise to improve your life or the lives of others. It may be as simple as “be kinder to my family” or far more extensive; whatever you believe you can and should do.):

Parent/Guardian Promise

I promise:               

  1. Never to ride in a car without using a seatbelt.
  2. Never to drive too fast, because where I’m going will be there, whether I’m 5 minutes early or fifty minutes late.
  3. Never to drive after drinking, even the smallest amount, because I cannot understand how impaired I may be.
  4. Never to drive after putting anything in my body that may limit my ability to think, understand and react.
  5. Never to text while I drive, because the message is never more important than my life.
  6. And, perhaps hardest of all, to stop my friends when they try to do any of the above.  Take away their keys; call their parents; call a cab; wrestle them to the ground, if necessary.  Whatever it takes.

Furthermore, as a parent or guardian, I promise:

  1. To actively chaperone all gatherings in my home or on my property, regardless of whether my or another teen doesn’t like it.
  2. To welcome calls from other parents whose children have been invited to my home.
  3. To prohibit the possession or use of alcohol or drugs by underage youth in my home or on my property.
  4. To prevent from driving any teen in my home or on my property who appears to be high or intoxicated — and to alert his or her parents.

 

These things I promise you, Adam.  Adam Michael Spivak London.
