If you peer into the depths – even to the farthest recesses of our souls – you still could not find this nightmare. Even the unconscious parts of us could not bear to form the picture. And yet it came.
It was so early in the morning that it still felt like night. The dog barked; then the doorbell rang. Light from a flashlight was coming through the windows at the front door. When we opened the door, we saw the badge and the hat. Much of what happened in the moments and days afterward is still a fog.
No Seat Belt – No Chance
Alexa had been driving down the interstate. She was doing what Alexa often did – going to help a friend. She somehow lost control of her truck. She was not wearing her seat belt and was ejected as the truck rolled several times. She was killed instantly. Alexa was just nineteen years old.
A New Mission Begins...
And so this mission was planted in our hearts: to provide positive encouragement for seat belt and vehicle safety. Our programs emphasize the importance of seat belt safety and driver awareness in engaging and interactive events.
We want you to wear your seat belts. Our Alexa’s Hugs seat belt wraps are a visual reminder to buckle up every time you get in the car – plus they are fashionable and fun! When you buckle up and feel the seat belt across your chest and around your waist, we hope you’ll think of a hug from a loved one. They want you safe. We want you safe.
