“Mr. Stone -

In the wake of the tragic death of Exodus Tyson, I wanted to thank you for the important message that you included in your interview with CNN: "All injuries are preventable." Your words are a good reminder that there are steps we can all take to make our homes safer....Thank you for ensuring that the national dialogue that has followed this untimely death includes recognition of the fact that we can all work together to prevent future injuries and deaths of this kind.”
