Violence is senseless, whether it happens behind closed doors in a home, or publicly targeting the most innocent lives imaginable. My niece lost her dear friend in the Sandy Hook tragedy. Today we were shocked by the bombings at the Boston Marathon. And other loved ones have experienced abuse and violence in private, where nobody saw.

For all the outpour of love and support after the Sandy Hook tragedy, there was also a senseless backlash. But we all deserve safety, love, and generosity. Any kindness is good, wherever directed. So, I am running the Providence Marathon in less than a month on Sunday, May 12 to raise funds for the Emilie Parker Art Connection. While the family has already committed to using gifts to pay it forward, frankly they should be free to use gifts however they choose.

There are many good causes. Acts of kindness don't compete against each other; they multiply.

I'm running because I believe in ACTS OF KINDNESS instead of violence. If you do too, please donate here, or to any deserving cause. All donations here are being directed to the Emilie Parker Art Connection's paypal.

You can learn directly about this cause, and Emilie Parker's story, here: http://emilieparkerfund.com

Note that I do not represent the family or their organization in any way. I am just one runner who has seen the amazing ability of marathons and athletes to fundraise on behalf of good causes, and I'd like to run my next race on their behalf.
