The line was “2-year-old in stroller pinned under van,” it’s one of those sentences that makes parents shudder. On December 16, a van crashed through the front window and the check stand of a Burien Ross Dress for Less store, injuring 11 people. While people discussed the criminal aspect of the incident, it was that little one that I wondered about.

11 injured, 3 critical after van crashes through Burien storefront

I discovered a few things about the boy in the stroller, he just celebrated his 2nd birthday, he loves Paw Patrol (who doesn’t), his name is David, and he needs our help.

Statement from Nicholas Cain with the Burien Police Department:

To help this family, I’m organizing some donations and hopefully get them back on their feet. I wanted to reach out to you all, because KCSO is a generous family that does this job to help people like these. As of tonight, there will be a collection area in the Precinct 4 sergeant’s office, where we will be collecting monetary donations, gas cards, toys, or anything else that can help. Deputy Marquez reached out to Lezly today, and she said that David loves Paw Patrol too. A replacement stroller will be purchased soon, so that’s covered. I’m setting a deadline for Thursday, January 2nd. The tentative plan is to compile everything and bring it all over to Lezly on January 3rd.

The theft of parental rights in Washington state is unconscionable and immoral

Quoting a law passed in Democrat-controlled Washington state originally designed to make sure girls could get secret abortions, insurance companies have been writing to parents informing them they no longer have any rights to be involved in crucial, life-altering decisions their kids want to make.
