Margay’s Story

Margay was an extremely bright child. She wanted to be a fighter pilot and more importantly she wanted to be a Blue Angel.

When she was In 8th grade, she was riding home on her school bus when the bus stopped to let some students off. Just then a distracted semi-truck driver who was using his cell phone ran into the back of Margay’s bus at approximately 60 miles an hour. The bus was on fire and I knew that something was terribly wrong. The rescuers were unable to remove her from the burning bus. That is how she died, lying on the bottom of the bus, unable to be rescued and all because someone chose to use their cell phone while driving.

If anyone is tempted to talk or text on their phone, please think of Margay lying on the bottom of that school bus.

Please honor Margay by signing the Courage to Intervene Promise and help us end distracted driving.

Margay wrote this poem just before she died.

I wonder where I will go in life
I hear the waves crash against the sand
I see the world all together
I want to become a blue angel
I pretend to fly
I feel I am someone special
I touch peoples heart
I worry about global warming
I cry about the way the world is
I understand when others don’t
I say I will be someone special
I dream about being a blue angel
I try to keep up
I hope this life will be the best

    I am one whom Miss Margay is helping. I am not nearly as distracted by my cell phone as I was before I met Margay about two and a half a lf months ago. I have her picture on my wall paper as a constant reminder not to be distracted, and she sure is helping me. I love all children and it crushes my heart to think of Miss Margay and the countless others whose lives have been changed forever all because of distraction behind the wheel. I was putting a log in iur wood burning stove and had to back up because the heat was too bad, and I cried thinking Margay couldn’t back up, couldn’t get away from the flames. She will forever be a part of me and I am doing my part to make sure everybody in my circle of influence knows about the beautiful baby on my wall paper. God bless her family for allowing Margay the opportunity to help people like me be more responsible behind the wheel. My prayers are with y’all in Jesus name.
