Ten Foot Tall and Bullet Proof

When considering Governor Kemp’s recent rollback of the decision to issue driver’s licenses to young people without a driver’s test due to the pandemic, I vividly recall my attitude and sentiment as a 16 year old boy: Nothing could hurt me. I really had little business alone and behind the wheel of a car at that age, and when thinking of my 18 year old driving son and soon-to-be 15 year old daughter, I am terrified.

What scares me the most is a parents’ worst nightmare. It is a nightmare the parents’ of Franklin Davis, Kassidy Avery, Cutter Avery, and Darius Prescott are currently living. It brings me to my knees in prayer to think about the suffering of each of these families.

Details of the horrific events Below:

There is no way to replace a loved one. Lifelong injuries can never result in a recovery. We cannot go back in time and ensure traumatic incidents do not happen. The only thing we can do is attempt to compensate victims and their families in some way. We recently secured a verdict of $21,029,363.00 in the United States District for the Northern District of Georgia for the death of a pedestrian. Despite that significant result, it bears no comparison to the life that was lost. Yet, it’s the only thing we have in our justice system to provide some level of recovery to victims and their families: money.

I thank God daily for the blessings I have and the safety of my children. I am also very thankful for the Founding Fathers and their 7th Amendment to the US Constitution giving all Americans the right to justice with a trial by a jury of our peers. My prayers will now include the families of Franklin Davis, Kassidy Avery, Cutter Avery, and Darius Prescott and hope they can find peace and justice soon.
