As I allow myself to remember the joy and laughter and love and creativity and grumpiness and irritability and silliness of my daughters, AnnaLeah and Mary, I also remember why I am working tirelessly to bring an end to Death by Underride — which snatched AnnaLeah from this earthly life on May 4, 2013, and Mary on May 8, 2013.
I was in that horrific truck crash four years ago today. I survived but they did not because of Death by Underride.
That is why I am pounding the pavement in our nation’s capital to tell our story and bring attention to this deadly problem and its solution:
- Summary of the bill: RAM CUP Act of 2017 SUMMARY
- Information Packet on the Truck Underride Problem: RESOURCE INFORMATION for the RAM CUP bill
- Draft 9 of the Roya, AnnaLeah and Mary Comprehensive Underride Protection Act of 2017: RAMCUP Draft 9 Comprehensive Underride Protection Act of 2017 RAMCUP
AnnaLeah & Mary, nothing will ever bring you back to us here, but
And someday, we will see you once again.
