Rate this:
When Margaret Miller's son, Bruce, was killed at age twenty-six by a drunk driver, her grief threatened to consume her. Mother's Against Drunk Driving became her lifeline, and as she slowly became involved with the organization, she found a way to use her grief and anger to start helping other families and to fight impaired driving across the country.In this moving memoir, Margaret details her journey through grief and describes how she turned her sadness into action, first volunteering with and then becoming national president of MADD Canada. She also introduces us to other victims and bereaved families she has met through her work with MADD Canada. Poignant and inspiring, The Gift tells not just heartbreaking stories but also uplifting and hopeful stories of life after injury and loss.Believing firmly that the hope MADD Canada has brought to her life is a gift from her son, Margaret has dedicated her life to bringing that hope to other victims. This book honours the victims of impaired driving, provides hope for the bereaved, and gives every reader a strong reminder that with the help of ordinary Canadians, MADD Canada is saving lives.
