The abused, the forgotten and the helpless have lost a champion of epic proportions.
Cricket who was recently honored by the Kentucky Legislature for her work, a woman who was working towards the ending of violence met with a violent death by stabbing.
Cricket founded the now national child abuse prevention and awareness movement, the Katelynn Stinnett Memorial Ride, after bonding with the Kentucky toddler, who died at age 2 of brutal child abuse. She was the founder of the Borrowed Angels Charity Riders, she worked for veterans and needy families - her work made a difference, her life touched thousands and now she is gone.
My prayers go out to her family, her friends, her sisters of the wind, the victims she worked for, the causes she championed.
Our world lost a bright light that will now look down upon us and she will guide and mentor those of us who held the same values and sense of community that she did...guide us girl - our world is a sadder place with out you, so guide us and show us all how to keep your good works moving forward....let's keep that light shining bright...
