  1. Nothing can bring her back, however RN jobs will be created, companies will increase their revenue for equipment installed, electronic equipment to monitor intakes, state funds to ensure that intakes have opportunity to gain funds to bail out even if family/friends are unable to quickly assist, etc., and bills that should pass to HONOR her activist legacy. No matter what is said about Sandra Bland, she gave her life after being voided of human dignity in a SIMPLE traffic stop in Waller County. Her name will FOREVER be attached to #TEXAS, #PRAIRIEVIEWUNIVERSITY, #HUMANDIGNITY…Rest in Peace Sandra-God knows you soil can rest now, in Peace!
