Living With Pain, Learning From Tragedy
No parent wants to bury their child, but sometimes life intervenes in tragic ways.
Three years ago, Curtis Hampton Senior got a phone call changed his life.
On May 19, 2007 his son was at a concert with friends, when they were on their way home, the car his son was riding in sped out of control and crashed into a palm tree.
Curtis Junior and his best friend Dante Anderson did not survive the accident, but tragedy changed Curtis Senior's life in a positive way.
He now travels to high schools across the state to warn other students about the dangers of wreckless driving and speeding.
Curtis Senior says if he can save even one teen's life, the pain he experiences talking about his sons death is worth it.
