MADD Holds Candlelight Vigil

The 17th annual candlelight vigil to commemmorate the victims of drunk driving and crime, in general, was held Sunday in Cookeville. Norris Skelley is with the local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and says his wish is that the organization did not have to exist. He says the vigil yesterday is intended to honor both victims and families. He also says the group plans to encourage local restaurants to establish designated driver campaigns and hopes to have local drivers commit to enjoying the holidays without drinking and driving.
