CABOT, Ark. — Rick Ellis went to a cemetery on the fourth anniversary of his daughter’s death. She was 6 when she was killed by a drunk driver, who Ellis says was the girl’s mother.
He presses record on his phone.
“I’m gonna tell you something. Life isn’t about getting high. I’m kind of speechless right now.”
After a pause, he continues.
“If I can help anybody, I want you to listen to me.”
He then talks in an honest and pained way, wanting to show what happens when you “get drunk, play around and be stupid.”
He posted the video to his Facebook page and the video has gone viral.
