On Friday, April 15th, Winlock high school students and the 8th grade students sat in silence and in thought throughout most of the day. To begin, they sat in the middle school and watched a video of their classmates at a "party" and saw them get into a car after drinking. The car began to swerve and then the video cut to black, which followed with the infamous question: "What did I just do?" The story behind this mock DUI crash was students went to a party, chose to drive after drinking, and then one student got behind the wheel with three other passengers and struck another car with a mother and two small children. Judges, defense attorneys, and attorneys of the state from the Lewis County Prosecutor's Office were also present during the "trial" and sentencing of the student who drove under the influence. A mock funeral was held where close friends spoke about the life of the deceased, the older sister of the two girls killed sang a song, and the student who was the drunk driver spoke and apologized for his actions. The emotions were very real, though the car crash was fiction.
