For those of you in Oregon or around Oregon, or with a television, us here in the state have experienced a tragic loss. I lost a spiritual sister of mine who I may have never met but it hits home. Her name was Whitney Heichel and she appears to be a beautiful person on the inside and out. Her and I never met but share very similar beliefs and we both no this crappy world will get better.
Of course do to this immediate sadness I need to find a solution, a cure to my mental trial. I am not sure if any additional skill or training may have assisted poor Whitney when a gun was held to her but I feel even more strongly about women taking charge and learning self defense. Through Facebook she had shared photos of her September 2012 Warrior Dash. I had played with the idea of doing it in passing but with my first half marathon I completely forgot about it and may have passed anyways due to cost and possible injury.
Right now I am in the works of TRYING to make something happen that can and will benefit women in my area hopefully. Right now I am waiting for direction from organizers as to whether or not it is even possible, but I do hope it is. This "solution" to help women is keeping me up-beat while I am sulking a lot while more and more comes out as to what this young women was put through in a matter of couple of hours. It is keeping me ignited to prevail in myself and towards others. Once I am hopefully able to announce something I will. If things do not go as I hope I will still try other avenues and I will let you know them as I am able to.
Thanks for reading my sadness.
