Daily Point of Light 3912, Mike Heike

We know that life is full of lessons. Some we learn the easy way, and some we learn the hard way. Mike Heikes was riding in the front seat of a car in 1982 with one of his friends. Both had been drinking, and Mike was not wearing a seat belt. His friend missed a curve in the road at a high rate of speed, and they were involved in a car accident. The accident occurred the weekend before Mike was due to began college.
