The video speaks for itself. I found it while scanning CNN online. Mathew Cordle confessed to the drunk driving death of Vincent Canzani in Ohio last June. Watch it and draw your own conclusions.
What is more amazing is the good that will come of this. The site it is posted on, because I said I would. is a social change site that encourages people to keep their promises by writing and exchanging promise cards. An idea that I would have thought was a nice piece of piffle, until I saw this video.
What Matthew Cordle did was horrible; what he did about it is amazing. because I said I would was the vehicle for it.

A coat developed by a social entrepreneur and designed for homeless people is now a somewhat hot item in the high-end fashion world.
Earlier this month, 23-year-old Veronika Scott told PBS News Hour that she had plans to add a for-profit arm to her non-profit company, The Empowerment Plan, which has donated over 1,000 coats to the homeless since launching in late 2010.
Scott’s foray into the private market comes after she debuted the coats at last year’s Aspen Fashion Week to much fanfare, helping her land a $100,000 investment from the billionaire founder of Spanx, Sara Blakely.
Youth Advisory Board member Alexis, attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards earlier this week. She discusses how inspiring the awards ceremony was in honoring women of all ages, across all fields, and in particular, the Millennial women who have made a difference this year. She explains what stood out below and how women are changing the world.
On Monday night, I had the opportunity to attend Glamour’s 22nd Women of the Year Awards. The event took place at Carnegie Hall and was filled with influential people from all over the community, most of whom were women, including many Millennials! As a Millennial woman myself, I was extremely inspired by each of the winner’s speeches and how these individuals are shaping the world.
Ten awards were given to outstanding women who have exhibited some sort of achievement or contributed to a cause they are passionate about.
Target: U.S. legislators
Goal: Do not allow temporary permits for untested genetically engineered crops.
Congressmen have silently introduced what are called “Monsanto riders” to a major agricultural bill, requiring the Secretary of
Agriculture to allow genetically modified crops before an Environmental Impact Statement is complete. Tell Congress these loopholes for unsafe crops are unacceptable.
Representatives of the House and Senate have been crafting the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill for so long that when congressmen quietly slipped in the Monsanto riders, neither the media nor the public stirred. Thankfully, alert citizens have raised awareness of these new additions to the bill. These dangerous riders would require–not allow, but require–the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered to halt the planting or cultivation until an Environmental Impact Statement has been completed.
Read and Sign Petition.
Chocolatier Anthon Berg recently enabled customers to pay with a good deed, rather than cash, at a pop-up location called The Generous Store.
I have repeatedly demonstrated that – despite the false divide-and-conquer tactics of the mainstream parties and mainstream media – the overwhelming majority of Americans agree on the most important issues facing our country.
