“If someday speed would kill me, do not cry, I was smiling” – Paul Walker.
Nobody thought that this would indeed become the life statement for the actor. On November 30, 2013, the iconic and most followed star alongside Vin Diesel from the Fast and the Furious franchise, Paul Walker, lost his life to a fateful accident. I could still feel that shock and terror which I had felt that day. Almost all of us have heard the name, Paul Walker. In most cases, this name has a special place in the hearts.
Someone has said it truly, you only realise the value of something when you lose it. The world understood this after losing Paul. While everyone missed Paul Walker, some people focused more on his family. And it’s true, after all, a 15-year-old teen girl had lost her father. Paul’s daughter, Meadow had even filed the case against Porsche automobile manufacturer; stating that their car model Carrera GT lacked the proper stability control system. Unfortunately, she lost that case, but not her hope. She picked herself up, worked hard, and now Meadow has honoured her father’s name in the most beautiful ways possible.
Let’s have a look!
The tragic accident
On 30 November 2013, Paul Walker was killed in a car crash. Roger Rodas was driving the Porsche nearly 55 miles faster than the speed limit when it crashed into a lamppost and two trees. As horrific as it sounds, the terrible accident was enough to claim two precious lives Meadow was 15 when Paul died.
At the time of the accident, Paul had been staying with his daughter for almost two years. And she was 15 years old when he died. No age is good to lose parents, but if it’s a teenage, it is worse.
Meadow is a big girl now and has been taking up some really big projects.
She’s finishing up her high school and is all set to be a grown up, working on big projects.
Several years ago, she made an announcement about the launch of The Paul Walker Foundation.
And at such a young age, it is amazing what she is choosing to do with the money.
The purpose of the foundation is to honour her father and his passion.
Paul walker’s passion for the ocean, rescuing the animals and helping people is not hidden from us. And his daughter is working on keeping that alive.

Meadow is all set to take after her father’s generosity.
