Educator Jennifer Bukosky and her Daughter Courtney Bella
On April 25th, an orthopedic surgeon driving an SUV while under the influence of prescription drugs, plowed into a smaller car, killing a pregnant high school administrator and a second daughter..3 people senselessly taken too early...one yet to be born, one just 10 years old and an enthusiastic educator in her 30's. Two days before, the offender, had appeared in court on his 3rd offense of driving under the influence. The judge, delayed his sentencing for 2 weeks...and due to that delay...three people were struck down far too early...lives snuffed out forever...
The parents of this young mother have bravely taken this cause to the media...and more importantly to the legislature. They have taken their case to us...to us to make a change in society that can save lives. I get lots of e-mails that ask me to pass them along...that grant me wishes and riches if I pass them to X number of people. No amount of passing this message to anyone will replace the people who were lost.
If you are a Wisconsin voter....sign this petition and pass it on to everyone in your address book.
If you aren't a Wisconsin resident...talk to your legislators about how you can help enact laws making your state a safer, saner place to live.
