To many times recently, we have turned on the news or radio and have heard about tragedy striking regarding our students and their families. People not watching out, not paying attention, in too big of a hurry, and next thing you know is there is a death. A life lost.

With today’s advancing technology, newer and safer methods to drive are always surfacing. But, nothing beats still watching for the darting child at the corner. Parents are waking their children up in the mornings, getting them ready and out the door for the day. In the afternoon, parents and loved ones are heading home after a long day at work. Expecting to see their children’s smiling faces, and hearing about their day. But, for some parents/families, those days are cut short. By a phone call telling them their child/ren have been involved at an accident. That their child is fighting for their life or the worse one of all....your child didn’t make it.

As a school bus driver, I get up every morning and head out my door to get ready to pick up these amazing children. I pray the entire time, because I truly don’t know what I would do if something happened to one of my kids. I am always trying to figure out a safer way to take care of these precious souls, I have been blessed to encounter every day. 

I am asking parents, families, our communities to help me. A change needs to happen. I am asking that we pull together and demand changes take place. But, until then...please back up your students driver. Help us to be able to do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety of our kids. Whether it be door side pick up/drop off, pulling into the middle of an intersection and blocking it or blocking the road to ensure that our kids can cross the street safely. That they have a chance to get home to their family at the end of the day.

Also, stand behind us with turning in the people who violate our stop arms. The police can only do so much. But, us as a whole, can help each other out. Help us catch these people. Stand for them to be prosecuted as well as a loss of license and fined. 

Remember at the end of the day, tomorrow is never promised to us. But, by standing together we can definitely give better chances for a more beautiful tomorrow.
