In Memoriam

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Ten years ago today my life was ripped in half, changed forever. So many lives were forever altered; so many lives were needlessly lost.

If there is one thing that I’ve learned in the last decade, it’s that the only way I can honor those who were lost, the only way I can honor surviving, is by living the best life I possibly can. So today I’m far away from the news, far away from the images, remembering. Honoring. Healing.

I wish the same for all of us affected. And I raise my glass today to those who were lost. May our lives always do honor to your memory.
