Last night I took Tom and PK out the quilt that I made for them out of their son Alex's t-shirts. They were very very thankful to have it, and I felt good about being able to make it for them. I pieced and bound the quilt and a friend, Christine Nelson quilted it, and she did a terrific job!
I was hestitant to make the quilt when PK first asked me, but my husband Allan told me that if I only do one more quilt this one had to be it. I have told him thank you for convincing me to do it.
Have you ever listened to the song WHY by Rascall Flatts? I'd like you to click on the link and listen to it. From the first time I heard it, this song reminded me of Alex, right down to the reference to the tree in it.
Tom and PK have become very vocal in trying to stop bullying, and I pray that thru their efforts they are able to save at least one child. Every one in my family wears a brown bracelet in memory of Alex and on it is the words, Hear It, See It, Stop It. It's good advice and I hope you take it to heart and do just what the words say. Do it for Alex, do it for all the people that need you to help them.
Be nice, it matters....
