Dear Friend, This past Sund…
Dear Friend,

This past Sunday, I completed my first marathon - the New York City marathon. On one hand, the event was a five + hour multi-cultural block party. Really. Complete strangers greeted one another with smiles, fist pumps, and high fives.

In December 2012, 26 innocent people died at Sandy Hook Elementary School. So, each mile I ran was for one of the victims - the children, the school psychologist, the teacher's aides and teachers, the principal.

To acknowledge the deceased, I carried 26 cards with me and, after completing each mile, I gave a spectator one of these cards and spoke about the victim. Then I meditated on the next mile, the next victim and was on my way.

Nothing could have kept me from crossing that finish line.
Thank you for supporting me emotionally and Sandy Hook Promise Foundation financially. It takes $1 to educate one child about gun violence and mental health warning signs. We have work to do and it will take all of us, engaging collectively, to make an impact.

Choose love.
