MASS

I'm guessing that most of my readers are Moms, so I wanted to take a second and ask for your help.

After attending the visitation last week of a 2 year old little girl that was killed after being hit by a neighbors car while they were backing up - several friends and myself were talking about how it should be mandatory that all cars have back up sensors or cameras of some type to help keep this from happening.

We know that this issue is important to Moms everywhere and we need help and numbers across the United States, this is not just a local issue or problem. We have to reach car companies everywhere and we need your help. Even if you don't have time to devote to researching or petitioning, we can use you has a number.

Our group is called MASS - Mothers Are So Strong. This group is an advocacy group for children, and for all Moms, relatives and friends of children. Our first mission, and the reason we came to be, is to create a bill requiring all vehicles on the road to be equipped with rear obstacle sensors.

There is current legislation on this issue and we have the names of groups and Senators that have been involved in passing this along.. Let's join forces and push this issue.

I joined the group on FB and the next morning, was happy to see 6 or 7 of my friends had, too.

No Mama should ever go through what that one is. Ever.
