Mom gives daughter legacy by speaking against drunk driving

 

SELMA, Ind. — Kim Morrow’s life changed in the wee hours of Oct. 28, 2012. That’s the day her 17-year-old daughter chose to get in the car with a drunk driver who later tried to outrun a train. She found out at about 7 a.m. that Amber, spending the night with a friend, wouldn’t be coming home.

The next few months were a blur for Kim. She stay connected to Amber’s friends and cheered on her younger daughter, Emily, but both struggled for a sense of normalcy and sought help to deal with their tragic drunk-driving loss.

And then, Kim found a way to give Amber a legacy. She created the Amber Morrow Memorial Scholarship Fund and accepts speaking engagements to warn young people about drinking and driving. If it means one person stops and thinks before making the same fatal mistake, then Kim believes her daughter didn’t die in vain.
