Happy Birthday J.T. Everyday without you is a river of pain. Sometimes it flows gently and just the sound of it reminds me your gone, sometimes its like the rapids and I fight and struggle just to keep from drowning. I am so grateful for your brother and sister because in them I see what your were and what you might have become. I know that God has given you a wonderful job and it fulfills the purpose for which you were created, but please know that as long as there is me there is you and I will carry you with me until my last step. Things may come and go but my love never will. I love you, I miss you, Happy Birthday baby. Mom

Anyone who would like to come and walk for those who have been killed or injured in an ATV accident is welcome to do so. If you are not nearby and would like your loved one represented please let me know. We will have people on hand to walk for you. All we need is a picture and a name.

I have recently noticed that an article about the lawsuit has made it on to some of the ATV websites. People are posting it and asking for comments. The comments included remarks like “They have no right to sue…they should live with there mistakes” or “deal with there actions”. Consider this…isn’t that exactly what I’m asking Yamaha to do? We are alleging that the Yamaha Rhino is unsafe due to its stability problems. I am asking them to change the design of the ATV. In effect “deal with their actions”. This is the way Americans prompt change in corporations. When something goes wrong with the products we use, the cars we drive, or the prescriptions we take we make the manufactures responsible for the defective product. We force recalls to make the products we use safer. You can love what I’m saying or hate it either way the more people that know the less injuries are suffered and the less people die.

One week from today on September 19th J.T. would be turning 10 years old. As the day approaches I find myself with so much to say to him. I have decided that for his Birthday I will send my messages to him in hellium balloons. Anyone who wants to do the same can e-mail me the message and I will make sure to send them up. If you didn't know J.T. or dont have a message to send think about this...Send up a balloon in rememberance. For parents who lost a child, for kids who lost a sibling, or just for awareness. I will keep my eyes to the sky.

I have decided that it is J.T.'s compassion that is driving me to reach out and tell this story. As a Mom we are responsible for sharing with other mothers what we learn along this journey of parenthood. I know that Bubba would want us all to reach out, spread the word and keep this from happening to another child. I want to share everything I have learned with every parent I can. The good and the bad....and hopefully a tragedy like this will never get any closer than this to another family.
