I have to tell you I just feel so privileged that community organizations like Reruns R Fun pick MADD to support – helping us to make a difference in the community.  Thursday MADD will get a donation alongside the La Vista Fire Fighters Association.

For MADD this will allow us to serve victims impacted by drunk driving, hold our annual picnic in the Greater Omaha Area, continue support groups and maintain our volunteers through the active Community Action Site.

But most of all let’s look at the great good that has been done by Reruns R Fun. In the past 6 years, Reruns R Fun has given over $1.5 million worth of donations to various organizations. All proceeds from each sale are donated to local and international organizations that aim to improve health and educational opportunities for children. Over 70 organizations have benefited from Reruns’ generosity. www.rerunsrfun.org

Reruns R Fun is Omaha’s longest running children’s consignment sale (13 years and going!) and the area’s ONLY sale that is not-for-profit! Reruns has the honor of being the nation’s largest Non-Profit children’s consignment sale.

MADD and our members are grateful to Reruns R Fun for their support of our mission: to stop drunk driving, support victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.

A BIG thank you!

I have worked with victims across the state and I have to tell you many of them are so forgiving and want to think the very best of the circumstance they have been handed. jailbars

 With that said, I can simply state if an offender breaks the law we, as a society, must hold him/her acountable to the highest extent that the law allows or the offender will simply snicker of into the sunset.

 Robinson, after killing two passengers in his car in 2007, was again picked up for drunk driving. http://www.ketv.com/news/20707869/detail.html I wish I could say this comes as a shock. However, it doesn’t and all it does is serves as a strong reminder: wishing people would do the right thing doesn’t make them do it.

Robinson knew what he was doing, he had intent, he knew he was underage and his BAC was .09 at 7:30 a.m. He is 20 years old and it is high time that we all make sure the courts do not allow diversion and that he is indeed held to the highest standard of the law – jail. 

MADD supports the rights of the victim’s first and foremost – we all should. Let the Sarpy County Attorney’s office know your concern for the community.http://www.sarpy.com/attorney/
