Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was founded on September 5, 1980, in California by Candace Lightner after her 13-year-old daughter, Cari, was killed by a drunk driver. Its mission is to stop drunk driving, support those affected by drunk driving, prevent underage drinking, and strive for stricter impaired driving policy. MADD claims that drunk driving has been reduced by half since its founding. It’s an encouraging example of how God uses painful stories in our past to write better stories for others. There’s another reassuring example of that in Exodus 23:1-9.
