Eric in Kenya -Karen Camp

 This is what your son does to make you feel better.  Eric got into Nairobi on Friday night and Saturday morning there was a terrorist attack at a mall.  He had us worried as they had said the night before they were going to a mall in the morning.  Not the way we wanted Eric's year in Kenya to start, but hope things only get better from here on out.

 Just a few months after she died, “Amarria’s Law” was in place; the law requires Virginia schools to stock epinephrine and allows school authorities to give it to children without a prescription, and indemnifies those who administer it in a life-threatening situation. There is now an opportunity for similar legislation to be enacted nationally, in the form of the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act, and I urge lawmakers to pass it. The House approved the bill in July, and it is likely to go before the Senate this fall.
