Jennifer Ewing

I wanted to post about Jennifer Ewing yesterday but I just couldn’t find the right words.  Jennifer was murdered while on her regular ride, a fifty mile run on the Silver Comet Trail.  Her partially clothed body and bike were found just off the trail in Paulding County.  I can make all kinds of lofty pronouncements about not living in fear but the fact remains that Jennifer is dead today just because she was a woman and she was alone.  I have a 13 year old daughter who is a great rider and soon she’ll grow tired of having to wait around for dad to catch up and want to ride off on her own.  I always thought that when that day comes I would be able to let her go, today I’m less sure.
