Hello, everyone! Welcome to Words in Use 2. Our story for lesson 29.
For years a furniture salesman from Connecticut, Mitch Kurman, has toiled* ceaselessly* for the passage of a youth summer camp safety bill. Why? Because his son David was drowned when his canoe overturned in the raging* waters of the Penobscot River. The camp counselors leading the trip were inexperienced, had blundered* into dangerous waters, and had no life jackets for the canoers. Mr Kurman was naturally dazed* by the tragedy. But rather than merely mourn his loss and wait for the painful memory to subside, he began a campaign that took him on hundreds of journeys to speak to governors, senators, and congressmen. He had learned that 250,000 children are injured or maimed annually* in camp accidents. It was hard for him to comprehend* why we have laws that outlaw* mistreatment of alligators, coyotes, birds and bobcats, but we have no law to prevent disasters* to children in summer camps. Wherever he went, Mr Kurman was commended* for his efforts, but he received only trifling* support from the lawmakers. One bill, requiring people to put on life preservers when they took to the water, died in the final* reading. Another such bill exempted* private ponds and lakes, exactly the waters where most summer camps are located. Even a bill calling for a survey of camp safety conditions was at first defeated. Mr Kurman’s struggle so far has been in vain, but he continues his battle to avoid* a repetition* of the accident that took his son’s life.
