A message from Laura

"As a survivor of vehicular assault, I know violence is about control. I have high hopes that Laura's card will educate and empower victims and their families. Information and available resources help victims take back their lives. Victims and their families are entitled to rights and resources that will assist them in their journey to recovery. It is my hope that tragedy will be turned to triumph, and victims will become victors."
