Four Years into the Journey of MY “New Normal”: 
A Mom’s Tale of Perseverance After Vehicular Heatstroke

My life underwent a major, unwelcomed transformation on Wednesday, May 25, 2011– the day that shall forever live in infamy for me. This is the day that I lost my beautiful Sophia Rayne “Ray Ray” Cavaliero through a danger to child passenger safety that I never heard of prior to my loss. Vehicular Heatstroke, oh how I loathe this under-recognized, misunderstood danger to children, especially those under two years of age. Four years into the journey of learning to live without my Ray Ray, I remain mad as hell that more attention is not devoted to this leading non-traffic cause of fatalities for children under 14 years of age. So angry, in fact, that I have waged my own war against Vehicular Heatstroke in Ray Ray’s memory. Though my body is tired, my soul is weary, and I sometimes I feel as though I am out of fuel and running on fumes, I soldier onward, carrying out my pledge to Ray Ray to end these senseless tragedies. I remind myself, almost daily, that though I lose a few battles, I MUST win this war against vehicular heatstroke. Failure is NOT an option for those precious babes of the world who are in danger and whose parents do not even recognize the risk.
