Letter to the Editor: Trick or Treat

The Easterner

As Halloween approaches, children across the nation are gearing up to knock on people’s door with those three infamous words: “Trick or treat!“

Some young adults, on the other hand, may plan to celebrate this joyful event with bubbly alcoholic beverages. However, it is imperative that our partygoers know how important it is for them to abstain from drinking and driving on Halloween. Children are going to be more focused on that house across the street that has been giving out king sized candy bars, rather than the car that is headed in their direction. As a 21-year-old myself, I can only imagine the impact my poor decision to drink and drive could have on an entire family and a community as well. So please join me in making the right choice by having a designated driver for this glorious night of children in the streets.
