The morning began like any other. It was a flurry of activity as everyone in your home prepared for his or her day. Your child left for school, as he had so many times before, only this time the day ended in tragedy.
What To Do If Your Child Dies Walking to School in Cedar Rapids
It is every parent’s worst nightmare. It can be hard to think of anything that you can do in the days, weeks, months and even years following your child’s death. However, there are things that you can do in your child’s memory and to help prevent other families from suffering the way you are suffering. Specifically, you can:
- Start a fund or scholarship in your child’s memory. This will help make sure that your child is remembered in the community.
- Raise awareness about the dangers of walking to the bus stop or to school. This may encourage drivers to drive more carefully and to watch for children.
- Hold the person who killed your child accountable. This may send a message to other drivers that negligence is unacceptable and that they will be held accountable for their actions.
None of this will be easy, but you are not alone.
