To Keep My Daughter Alicia's Memory Alive

The bracelets are a nice tribute to my daughter and others whose lives have been taken by terrorists. Every little thing we do to keep Alicia’s memory alive helps in some small way. People have reached out to us in untold ways with love and compassion and it does help us through the pain of our loss and restores our faith in humanity. We are totally opposed to more violence against other innocent people as a way of combating terrorism and fervently hope that our world learns ways to communicate better, develop understanding and appreciation for those different than us, and work toward resolving conflict in a peaceful manner. 

During this past year, I was approached by a man whom I vaguely knew in Columbus, Ohio. He had on one of your bracelets for Alicia. It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for helping to keep her spirit alive.
