Sunday (Nov 19th) is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Each year I have marked the occasion at an event but today I have decided to share with you all something very personal, powerful and life changing.
If you have time I ask you to sit and listen to this documentary I made. It might just save your life.
Marcus didn’t want to die. He had so much to live for. He had applied to University, had his house designed and much more. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be.
He was much more than a brother, he was a father, a friend, my saviour. Living without him has been a struggle but something I have had to adjust to. I still want to pick up the phone when I am feeling sad and tell him about my day but I cannot do that. Instead I talk to him and hope someday he will give me a sign to let me know he can hear. He was such an influence and left a mark on all our hearts.
His death ripped us apart and changed my perspective on life. I can’t hold onto his life any more, instead I can hopefully save lives and spare families the pain and suffering.
Marcus is now a number, a statistic but I will not let his death be in vein.
What I am sharing is our story, his life and his death. Please take care on the roads.
