Run Life Your Way
(In Kristin's memory, and in hopes that this might help another, I am reposting this one again. Because the message can't be heard enough.)
"I run for hope, I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
I run for you and me, my friend
I run for life ..."
("I Run for Life" by Melissa Etheridge)
At 21, Kristin Mitchell had her entire life ahead of her.
She had a brand new college degree from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. A family bursting with pride, with love. A wonderful job lined up with General Mills.
And she had a boyfriend who killed her - on June 3, 2005, three weeks after this photo at her college graduation was taken.
Her entire life.
If the darkness knocks on your door
Remember her, remember me
We will be running as we have before
Running for answers
Running for more ...."
"I Run for Life" ~ Melissa Etheridge
