Help protect children from abuse. Support Constance’s Bill.

I lost my precious wife and daughters during the Gatlinburg, Tennessee wildfires last fall. My wife Constance was an amazing person, a wonderful mother, and an adult survivor of childhood abuse and molestation. The effects of that abuse haunted her into her adult years. PTSD, anxiety, and fear were an everyday reality of her life.

My wife’s one true hope for her life was to help others who’d experienced the same kind of trauma that she did. Now that she’s gone, it’s up to me to help make Constance’s life-long wish come true.

In her honor, I’m proposing “Constance’s Bill”. Constance's Bill would be a nationwide text alert number that can be taught to EVERY child in the country. If a child is in danger, they can text the word "HELP" to that alert number, and the message will immediately be forwarded to their local law enforcement agency. Children are abused across our country every day. We can empower them to stay safe with this simple program.

Help me honor my wife’s legacy -- and save as many children as possible from a life of abuse, trauma, and pain. Please sign and share this petition right now.
