Changes in legislation alone prove the Troy and Alana Pack Foundation has gotten results.

I would like to thank the Danville Weekly for applauding the efforts of the Pack Foundation, which has sought to stop catastrophic car accidents.

At times, rushing commuters egregiously commit errors that slaughter the lives of innocent civilians on the road.

I think there should be more foundations like this. Although, it shouldn't have to take a tradegy to form one.

Although, if there was enough time in the world without the daily stresses, we'd have time!
