I didn’t post the commercial because I try to avoid controversy – even though it was designed (like the infographic) to create awareness about preventable deaths caused by childhood injuries in the home.
Then I saw the trailer for Someday Melissa.
It’s sad, too.
But it didn’t interrupt the upbeat atmosphere enjoyed by football fans gathered around their TVs.
It’s about death from a preventable cause, too.
But it didn’t get sponsored by a large corporation whose motives seemed suspicious to some.
A mom created Someday Melissa so other moms wouldn’t experience her depth of grief.
The purpose of this blog is to help parents raise healthy kids, and the heartbreaking video trailer above is designed to do that.
