MY TURN: Don't drink and drive this holiday season

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - I want to take this time to remember Hezekiah Keyon Moss. Keyon lost his life last weekend when his family's car was struck by a vehicle driven by someone who police say was driving drunk. Listening to family and friends, you come to know that 13-year-old Keyon Moss was a very special young man. He was an honor student at Germantown Middle School and a devout Christian.

Keyon aspired to follow in his uncle's footsteps and become a pastor. Those who knew him say that he was already dressing for the role - that he was always dressed. Keyon was a very well-loved young man and many people are very sad this holiday season because of his death. The holidays are of course a time of celebration. For those of you who include alcohol in your Christmas and New Year's parties, please remember Keyon and his family and do the right thing. A surprisingly small amount of alcohol can a have a devastating impact.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
