I was incredibly saddened to hear the body of missing Georgia hiker, Meredith Emerson, was found. I know these searches usually have a bad ending, but I always hope for good news anyway. What a gorgeous girl, lost to senseless violence. Imagine going for a hike on New Years Day, and it ending like this. She was probably making resolutions and planning for her future. Meredith is another reminder of how much we have to do to end violence against women in this country. I am wishing Meredith’s loved ones any peace or comfort possible during this very dark time.
