Tragic News

Kate Puzey, a Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Benin, was murdered earlier this month. She was a positive force in the lives of everyone she met, and I am sure that spirit will continue.

Her family has set up a fund to support causes Kate believed in:

It is truly tragic when a person so young, selfless and striving only to do good in this world can be so prematurely struck down. The only consolation is that this can serve as a wake-up call for those of us who often find ourselves idle, failing not just to live life to the fullest, but to live that life for others.
