YouTube Confession

22 year old Matthew Cordle was driving under the influence of alcohol and was involved in a fatal car crash. He was driving the wrong way on a highway in Ohio and hit a 61 yea old man who was pronounced dead at the scene. Instead of running away from his mistake, he accepted it and pleaded guilty in the courtroom. “Whatever my sentence may be, there’s no such thing is a fair sentence when it comes to taking a life,” Cordle said.

“Matthew Cordle contacted the website Because I Said I Would on Aug. 9 to arrange his confession regarding the June 22 crash, according to a post on the site. Because I Said I Would encourages people to make promise cards to “remember the importance of your commitments and goals.” In his confession, Matthew begs and begs with all his heart that people  refrain from drinking and driving. He said he was going to serve his time because he knew he deserved it.

The Internet may be frustrating or stupid at times. But it also provides us with inspirational and educational things that can certainly help us in the long run.

About Noel Biever

My name is Noel Elaine Biever, and I'm from Lebanon, Pennsylvania. I hate living in the small town and I am ready to branch out. I love to travel. I've been to 11 countries in Europe and I can' t wait to go on another adventure. I hope to one day live and work in Europe, raise a big family, and speak a lot of languages fluently. Singing and acting are two things I absolutely love to do, as well as playing the guitar. I am a big fan of movies, and I am addicted to the $5 movie bin at Walmart. Saturday Night Live and The Big Bang Theory are two of my favorite shows, and I abolutely adore HGTV. I love the little things in life and I believe that everything happens for a reason. So that's me in a paragraph. Thanks for stoppin by:)
