With her permission, I want to tell you about Lara Mingus. Lara is a wonderful woman who suffered an unspeakably sad tragedy a little more than two years ago in rural Union County. She witnessed her 7-year old son, Jonathan, being struck by a van while he attempted to cross the road to get to his waiting school bus. I am not going to say anything about the how incident occurred because it is currently in litigation.
This much I will say — cases like this — and clients like Lara — are the reason I went to law school.
This good person is taking her devastating loss and trying to make something worthwhile come out of it. This past weekend, she helped the Donate 2 Life organization that helps save 3the lives of persons desperately needing and seeking healthy organs to stay alive.
They held a bike ride in Davidson, and raised awareness of the need for the services this organization provides, and thousands of dollars to help in the effort. Take a few minutes to look at the news reports, and learn about the families that are being helped in this effort.
