For people who say that they don't drink and drive, I fail to believe that. I know that you have a glass of wine, a beer, a drink or some form of alcohol and got behind the wheel at some point in your life. NO ONE on here is perfect at all and I don't want no one to claim that they haven't driven under the influence. Its just that you didn't get caught or you were able to make it home safely. We all make STUPID decisions at some point in our lives, we may not suffer the same reprecussions that Mr. Broussard has suffered but have or will suffer them in the future.
Im going to finish this off like this...Phil. 4:13.."For I can do all Things through CHRIST which STRENGTHENS ME." Take that scripture, both families, and use it to help you through this tough time. God is the ONLY one that can help you guys through this and my prayers are with both families.
First and foremost, my prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Tallon. I can not say that I know how you feel because I have never lost someone in my life in such a tragic way. I do know that you guys are having a hard time dealing with the situation. I understand the hurt and pain that you are voicing on here because you feel that is the way to get out how you feel towards Mr. Broussard.
Secondly, to the Broussard family, I am praying for you guys as well. I know how it feels to have someone in your family with a alcohol problem because my brother has one and he has made a decision in his life that led him the wrong way and now he is in jail. I am going to let you know that there is light at the end of the tunnel because my brother is getting out on the 2nd of next month after being in there for about a year. He has realized his mistakes and he is asking us for help and has made the first step and that is admitting that he has a problem. Just let Keenan know that he is able to get help and that ya'll are behind him and will always be.
Thirdly, I don't know either family personally. I did attend college with Keenan because we have some of the same friends, but I did not know him personally, at ALL. With that being said, I am a neutral person and what I have to say is based upon the comments that have been posted on here by both parties but mainly by the friends and family of Mr. Tallon. Keenan Broussard did commit a crime by taking someone's life and I am SURE that he regrets that and he wishes that he can go back in time and change things. But we as children of God have to learn that everything happens for a reason, like someone said, we may not know why God took this person away from you but he has another plan for Mr. Tallon and we have to let God do his work and know that Mr. Tallon is in heaven watching over each and everyone of you guys.
Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying to let Mr. Broussard off with a slap on the wrist. He has to pay for what he has done. Yes jail time is the right answer to the problem but the problem is deeper than that. He needs help and he needs it ASAP. He has to make the first step and that is admitting that he has a problem and that he wants to make a serious change in his life. I read that the most time he can get is up to a year in jail but he has to live the rest of his life knowing that he took someone's life and I feel that is punishment in its self.
