News like this is just sad… If you are a business owner, carding customers should be an immediate action when someone comes up to the counter to purchase alcohol. Clerks and other sales associates should be trained to understand the importance of compliance when it comes to restricting alcohol purchases to legal adults. An adult should never serve or sell alcohol to minors. PERIOD. Rethink the drink and prevent underage alcohol abuse!

It puts a lot of pressure on adults when they hear, “You need to be a role model for the younger generation.” As much pressure as that might add to an already stressful adult lifestyle, it’s true. News like this reinforces the fact that adults need to be mindful of their actions and how it might affect other people. If you are an adult who is a parent to a teen or who has young teen friends or acquaintances, be the role model you wish YOU had had as a teenager. Make wise choices when it comes to alcohol, exercise, work, relationships, and your hobbies. Show the upcoming generations that it IS possible to live a positive life and to make consistent, healthy decisions.
