Remember Alex Brown

I tuned into Extreme Makeover Home Edition last night to watch something truly inspirational. It is about the Brown family from Wellman, Texas. Alex Brown's story is a sad one, like most tragedy when a life is lost because a senseless act, but it's also a story of inspiration to others because her parents and sister are turning their tragedy into something really great. They are spreading the word about the dangers of texting while driving and hoping that teenagers and people alike will put down their phones and start paying attention to what's going on while driving. We pass through Wellman almost every time we go and see my inlaws. Mike and I had heard a great deal about the Brown family on the news and found out that Extreme Makeover Home Edition was building them a new home and helping them to spread the word to the rest of the United States about the dangers. The last time we were passing through, we went by to see their new house and there Alex's truck sat on top of the bed of the trailer they haul from school to school talking about the importance of texting while driving. Please watch this video and help with their cause if you feel the need to do so.
What a great family this is..and they need your help!
