Mom creates anti-bullying campaign after daughters die in car accident

Posted: Updated:
GRAND BLANC, MI (WNEM) -

A grieving mother set up a fund to start an anti-bullying campaign after the tragic death of her two daughters.

It has been a long, agonizing 11 months for Sarah Gorman dealing with the loss of her two young daughters.

"I have those days where I can't get out of bed," Gorman said. "They were amazing kids, loving, kind."

Isabella, who was 6, and Lily, 9, were on vacation with their dad in Wyoming last June when they were killed in a car accident.

Now Gorman is using her sorrow to do something good. She's started a campaign that she calls "Be Kind."

It's intended to combat bullying and use the same message she taught her daughters.

"My plan is to raise funds to purchase industrial benches that can last forever hopefully and these kids can be taught how to use the benches," Gorman said.

One of the benches is at Reid Elementary School in Grand Blanc where Gorman's daughters attended school. It's intended for anyone looking for a friend to come sit down. The bench shows the other kids they're in need of someone to talk to.

Even though Isabella and Lily are no longer here, Gorman thinks they would like knowing their mom was doing something to help other kids just like them.

"I think they'd just say, 'I love it mama, keep going. Keep raising it. Keep rising higher, and you're doing a good thing,'" Gorman said.
