The assumption is not just about Mary. It is about Jesus, Mary and us. 
JESUS died on the cross, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. Through his death and resurrection Jesus has opened the gates of heaven for us. 
MARY: Because God chose Mary to be the Mother of Jesus, Mary gets first place in heaven. God would not allow sin to touch Mary, and he also would not allow her body to rot in the grave. God took her up to heaven body and soul. 
US: What happened to Mary gives us hope that one day God will take us up to heaven to be happy with him forever. It is through the power of the death and resurrection of Jesus that Mary was saved and taken up into heaven; and that we too are saved and will one day join Jesus, Mary and all the saints in heaven. The Solemnity of the glorious Assumption of Mary into heaven is so important a feast that the Church has declared it to be a Holy Day of Obligation.
