How we became involved
With those overriding goals and concerns in addressing our daughter's tragic fate, our efforts extended into the following directions:
In offering this information, my goal is not to elicit credit or praise for these efforts, but to increase awareness. Soon after Kristine’s loss, we found that other parents are not inclined to seriously focus on this significant health and safety issue, unless directly affected in a terrible way by the consequences. While taking every possible effort to secure a safe environment for their children during the first sixteen years of their lives, parents allow events and the culture to take over when their now young adult is subject to the every increasing availability of alcohol products, especially when they begin college. They need to realize, that sending a son or daughter to college is similar to Russian Roulette, we never know who will not make the return trip home.
By clicking on the “see more” of each section, details of these efforts are available.
To learn why we felt the the circumstances behind Kristine's death were so egregious, go to "The Accident that Did Not Need to Happen."
We hope this information proves useful in addressing the troubling and risky culture that our youth confront at too many college campuses.
