Be The Best.

My niece is a movie star.

I didn’t know in advance, but AC (my sister) emailed me a couple of days ago to say that Brianna (my niece) and her pals from Heritage Park school in Mission were one of five finalists in the BCAA Dry Grad video contest.

I didn’t know Bri had a starring role, until I watched the vid.

What an amazing job by all five of these groups.

Having lost a child who should be graduating this coming June, we can think of no better cause than to have everyone (parents and kids alike) be alerted to the consequences of drinking and driving and the BENEFITS of a program like dry grad.

For Bri of course, the pain is very personal, having lost a cousin on her Dad’s side of the family after being struck by a drunk driver.  She was also so very close to Chris and the intensity of feeling I think really comes out in this short movie.

Any of these entries are fantastic…but of course I want you to vote for the gang at Heritage Park!

It’s a Facebook thing so you have to go here first:!/album.php?aid=12820&id=105892552814945

Sign in and ‘like’ this page.

Then you find the five videos, watch them on Youtube and then head back to Facebook to click ‘like’ under the video image you like the most.

Sound complicated?

Ask someone if you get stuck.  If they’re under 25, you’ll probably get much clearer instructions than the above…

GREAT JOB Bri and Heritage Park!! And a big shout out to all the schools that are participating in this very important cause.

If you want to watch the vid directly, here it is:
