Someone You Should Know

Meeting Chelsea King

 

I wanted to introduce an amazing young woman named Chelsea King. Chelsea is the daughter of Brent and Kelly King. On February 25, 2010, Chelsea was taken from her family and friends much too soon. I never had the privilege of meeting her in person, but while attending her memorial I came to know her as a wonderfully spirited woman with an infectious smile and an undeniable spark in her eyes. I had never witnessed such an outpouring of love and respect for someone so young. Chelsea will remain forever seventeen but she has grown in ways unimaginable to us all.

 

At the memorial, Brent said that Chelsea had so much she wanted to do with her life. This was followed by a long sad moment of silence as though all of Chelsea’s dreams had died with her. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Everyday Chelsea is making a difference, making her stamp on life. Through her parents and the Chelsea’s Light Foundation, Chelsea is helping to keep you and your children safe from violent sexual predators. She is changing California state legislature–Chelsea’s Law was unanimously signed into law only seven months after her murder–and continues to make a difference one state at a time. You have reason to thank her, and I encourage you to meet this wonderful young woman by visiting www.chelseaslight.org.
