I have been fortunate enough to be able to tell J.T.’s story and the stories of other victims quite a bit lately. It is a healing process, I believe, to tell people in a position of power exactly what the Rhino has cost me and others. I know that as I methodically climb this ladder eventually in the sea of faces I meet there will be one with the willingness and tools to make a difference in the lives of those who live on after the ones we lost too soon. Everyday there are more people added to the death toll of the Rhino. Just yesterday I received an infuriating call about two eleven year old girls who died on the same Rhino. Those families are just beginning the journey some of us have come to know too well. I wish we were to a point already where these too young lives didn’t have to be lost. We are not, but we WILL BE. There are very few things that people have an undying passion for, saving people from this fate has become mine and I am encompassed by an army of strong and stubborn advocates working hard everyday toward the same result of saving lives.

From the information I have gathered I believe the odds of a rollover on a Rhino are about 50%. Think about that compared to a game of Russian Roulette where the odds of dying are about 16%.
