Review for Kids In Danger, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 1998, when Danny Keysar was killed by a dangerous crib that had actually been recalled five years earlier, my work colleagues, my friends, and my family united to set other concerns aside to wonder how this could have happened. The founders of this group determined to work so that it would not happen again. I became involved because I agree that this work is vital and that steps can be taken to ensure that children's product safety as an issue goes into history. I see how this group focuses precisely on the type of legislation and enforcement that will benefit the development and testing and recall system for these products. It is a very organized and wise (a type of wisdom gained in a way that is too painful to contemplate) team. Sadly, this cause today must remain on the side of the angels....all of the little ones that have been lost and injured because of a system that was cracked and did not protect our most precious assets-our children.
