FORGET ME NOT MISSION II
June 15, 2011
The Forget Me Not Mission is inspiring in its commitment to actively fixing a problem through outreach. The cause is very real, and their Soul Shaking Grief books promote awareness through emotionally touching firsthand accounts as well as the bare facts associated with distracted driving. By working directly with the public, particularly young people, Forget Me Not gains a personal aspect that sets it apart from other well-meaning organizations. Dangerous driving can affect anyone, so it is up to every citizen to stay focused and sober behind the wheel. Forget Me Not brings awareness to the public through their publications, posters and presentations, and is contributing to a shift in values for what is acceptable when driving.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my school. People are truly impacted by its message, and there has been a definite change in what is considered safe behind the wheel. Now kids realize that any sort of distracted driving is unsafe, be it under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or simply texting.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand it even more. What the organization does is already wonderful, and it creates results, but it deserves more attention than it gets.
Volunteer & My journalism class is working with Forget Me Not to create a book for teens on the dangers of distracted driving.
