A Thanksgiving to Remember

In a Colorado prison, a mysterious delivery of unexpected treats helps brighten these alcoholics’ day

Shortly after I was one year sober, I was in my apartment when the sounds of a head-on collision tore up my serenity. A drunk driver had wandered across the center stripe of a nearby highway. It killed him and the two husbands in the other car, and crippled their two wives in the backseat.

Two days earlier the drunk had been released from jail after serving a year for drunk driving. He left the facility, went to a bar and drank himself into a blackout and never came out of it.
