After losing my youngest son, Jackson, at just 2 years old in a drowning accident, I’ve advocated water safety ever since. There is a crisis in the water! Drowning is preventable but it’s never talked about!

There are retention ponds everywhere! I want to bring attention to this and make our voice heard on this matter. All retention ponds should be fenced in and all new ones pending should be required to be fenced in. Retention ponds are not for public access but not fencing them makes it easy! No amount of signs, rules will keep a child away from one of the #1 things they are attracted to, water! 

Sure, we’ve all said this, parents should watch their children. Do you know every single human being has several lapses in supervision every day? That makes you human, not a bad parent. There are layers of protection we all can do to prevent these drowning tragedies from happening daily around the state! 

I hope you take this into consideration and implement this as a requirement from this day forward! Let’s make a difference and give these children a chance to live a life they deserve. Let’s help prevent the crisis in the water.
