In Memory of Heather’s Legacy

“My child’s famous Facebook post was, ‘If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention,'” she said. “[Heather] paid attention. She made a lot of us pay attention.”

“Here’s what I want to happen,” she continued. “You ask me, ‘What can I do?’ So many people … I want this to spread. I don’t want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather’s legacy – this is not the end of Heather’s legacy. You need to find in your heart that small spark of accountability. ‘What is there I can do to make the world a better place? What injustice do I see?’ … You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would have done. You take that extra step. You find a way to make a difference in the world.”
