Hi, it was 1974 when I was a senior in high school at the age of 17 years old when I was the victim of a life changing automobile accident. I was in a coma for 7 weeks and when I came out of the coma I was quadriplegic, only able to open and move my eyes. After many years of physical and occupational therapy I have recovered and wrote the book "Why Me Why Now", detailing my accident and my recovery. It was a long road I traveled filled with many hills, valleys and many pot holes, I wrote the book hoping to reach out to people illustrating this problem - "Teenage Drunk Driving". I have even wrote a play referencing the theme of my book with a friend titled "I Don't See My Shadow". When I talk to students about this subject I tell them not to walk in their friend's shadow, and Shoot for the Sun in everything they do, because even if they miss they will land among the Stars, and that is a great place to be.

Why Me Why Now? – **Mission Statement**

Why Me Why Now? is a book I wrote hoping to prevent teen death and life changing accidents due to alcohol and driving.  the organization Life=Limitless is created in taking steps towards achieving this goal.  Me – Mike Krysiuk (the core of this organization) with my heart felt desire to help teens understand the weight of decisions when it comes to the influences of alcohol and driving and how it can make a difference between living a limitless life or death.  I am a survivor of an accident when I as a passenger in, ran head on into a bulldozer, I still bear the scars, it has been a long road back.  I have spoken with kids at schools and have asked Spencer Lasky to help build the organization so we can affect as many kids as possible with a positive message and keep the dialog ever present in high school.  We are working towards influencing teens to walk in their own light and not in their friends shadows, hoping to influence these teens to shoot for the sun in everything they do, because even if they miss they land among the stars, and that is a great place to be.
