A Story of Reconciliation
"Not too far from where I live there's a sign,” Joe Avila says as he begins his story. "And it says, 'Please do not drink and drive.' And then there's a smaller sign underneath that reads, ‘In honor of Amy Wall.'" Avila pauses briefly before speaking in a firm voice: "Amy Wall was a young lady that I killed in 1992 while driving drunk on the freeway."
It's a shocking statement, but Avila is calm.
