The Shai Project: txt & drive, killr idea.


I have often wondered in my thirty-two years spent in radio what my legacy would be. What on air antics, or sports broadcast would I most be remembered for ...but as parents we have but one legacy. We have one thing that the world will inevitably judge us by ...our children.

On May 6th, 2011 while going to get pizza, less than two miles from our home, my seventeen year old daughter rounded a curve and hit a tree while Texting and Driving. Taken from the world in the blink of an eye while putting thumb to keypad. Gone?.

Legacy, what one leaves behind to be remembered by. Shai Lane McNeal Boone will be remembered for the lives she changed with but a simple smile. She will also be remembered for the life she gave to others by being an organ donor; but I think what most she will be remembered for is the lives she will save with but one simple message from The Shai Project; Txt & Drive. Killr Idea.
