it was a year ago today that the world lost
erin potts,
a brave and remarkable young woman.

and to read her mom's inspiring blog

let us be reminded by erin's short and brilliant life 
that all we really have is today,
at this very moment.

and every day is a precious new chance to
love and be loved. 

shower the people you love with love,
show them the way that you feel...
-james taylor


  1. And what a day to celebrate love! Don't ask don't tell was repealed...maybe a little gift...

  2. Oh, I didn't realize it was such a short time ago that Erin passed away. Sending out thoughts of love to Mary, you and all who knew and loved this remarkable young woman.
    My heart goes out to you.

  3. I do remember this
    has it been a year already?
    Sorry for your loss
    I will visit her blog

  4. I wish I knew what to say. This is the tragedy we all hope doesn't strike our families, but unfortunately, it sometimes does. Mary's blog is very profound and I send you all love and hugs and prayers.

  5. Love your comment, Hannah. It is so inspiring to see so many more "standing on the side of love." A lovely way to honor Erin's anniversary.
