For Katherine "Katie" McCarron, 2003-2006

Many of us have been rendered nearly speechless, wordless, and uncharacteristically inarticulate in trying to comprehend the fact of your murder, by your mother, on Mother's Day weekend.

Others have been inspiringly lucid in their analysis. Autism Diva provides a fine list.

I find myself among the former group: largely lost for words.

I have only a wish to share. That your life — with its brutal and wrongful conclusion — may inspire the changes that will affirm the value of the lives of everyone, autistic and otherwise, living with neurological differences and difficulty.
