Is that the actual Angel of Death modeling that ensemble, cuz it looks thin enough to be just a skellie underneath.Seriously though, it sounds like a good program. Teens and preteens think they're immortal. Even if this scares the pookie out of 'em, they'll recover enough to realize how easy it can be to get yourself kilt in a car - even without drinking"He talkeen crazee. He say sunthin about a seek horse."Tombstone
What do you mean you don't see the angel of death everyday? You and your ilk elected him president.
I was that guy in high school ;-)
Pretty emotional day for lots of the kids.
Not the Angel of Death. Its obviously Micheal Jackson.

Good a day for a reality check on kids of today..........yes, it IS an emotional check for kids.........do churches teach such, besides "emotional" with Scripture and music".......? ...doubtful if REALITY is taught - almost every kid is gonna drink....or lie about it.
i was in school the year BHS first did that, i came to school that morning to a car flipped on its top, i had forgotten that it was this program. i had almost freaked out when i saw it. and every 15 minutes the reper would come get someone, they'd paint their face white and walk around school all day as a dead person. pretty crazy but also very eye opening. its a good program to do
That looks like The Backdoor Intruder.
If you have never had the opputunity to experience one of these you should....it is very emotional. The kids are real students...the parents are real parents, the first responders are real and they do get into the role....the funeral home is even involved.....it will send chills down your spine. (especially when you hear the cries of the mother that shows up on scene) It is a great program!! Reality check... this happens every day in real life and if it keeps even one teenager from drinking and driving...then I guess it is worth it.
ah, the "shattered dreams" program. it is a staged drunk driving accident with fatalities. geared towards high school students in an effort to prevent them from drinking and driving. the grim reaper takes a student every 15 minutes, which is the current statistic on how often someone is killed in a dwi accident....great program!
Excellent program! I hope it continues throughout all of our schools. If it will make one kid stop and think before they do something irresponsible, it will be worth it!
I think it's a good program, but it only scares them for about 15 minutes. They will soon forget what they saw.
When I was in high school there was a boy chosen to be the "dead guy", and four years later he actually died in a car accident on 114. No alcohol involved. Just a sad situation.
It amazes me how some of you are so quick to discount everything! 8:13 - "they will soon forget what they saw" - maybe, but then again, we'll never really know the effects this program will have on the kids or the lives it may have saved. I actually attended the follow-up assembly at the school this morning at the school. One of the things that was mentioned to the kids was actually telling them that getting into a car with someone who has been drinking does not just apply to them and their friends. They told the students that if their mom or dad has been drinking, they should refuse to get into the car with them also. I think that was a great point to make! Think about it: a parent will drink a few beers at a restaurant with their family, then load up and drive home. But, that same parent gives the kids a lecture telling them not to ever ride with a friend who has been drinking! I know most parents will say, "I know my limit" or "I can handle it." Even if you do, for the sake of your child, be consistant and practice what you preach!
AWESOME PROGRAM ~ SHOULD BE DONE SOMEWHERE EVERY DAY ACROSS AMERICA...
