Yes, I did read that sad story Adam...what a tragic day for all involved. My wife and I are riding on Sunday to raise money for a foundation that was created from a unimaginable act of violence on three beautiful women. I truly don't know how the husband/father faces the day, but I think I'll know how he does it on Sunday. He is a better man than I'll ever be.
Here's just a part of what the foundation is trying to accomplish:
The PETIT FAMILY FOUNDATION website is designed to provide a complete portrait of who we are, what we do and why it is important to continue the memories of JENNIFER HAWKE-PETIT, HAYLEY ELIZABETH PETIT and MICHAELA ROSE PETIT. They were taken from us far too soon, but we are determined to honor their memories and to continue their many acts of kindness and activism.
With your help we can promote opportunity for young women, continue the fight against chronic illness and extend a blanket of comfort for others affected by violence. A change for the better does not just happen. We need each and every one of you to help fulfill our mission; you will all help to be the changes that JENNIFER, HAYLEY, and MICHAELA wanted to see in the world.
