Letter: Driver shows mother’s wisdomAfter seeing the photo of Mary Hodell’s demolished vehicle and reading that there were no fatalities, one cannot help but cheer, “Hip hip hooray!” (Forum, Jan. 13). Hodell demonstrated a mother’s wisdom and had all five of her kids strapped in. She also demonstrated good role modeling by strapping herself in, as well.
While the accident was horrendous and regrettable, the fact that there was no loss of life speaks volumes for the responsibility shown toward her children. Hodell and her five children are walking and talking proof that seat belts save lives. Mary, you saved six lives that day. Hip hip hooray!
