Liz Birt, one of the founders of Safe Minds, was killed the other day in an automobile accident while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado. I did not have the privilege of meeting or communicating with Ms. Birt, and that shall be a regret for the rest of my days. She was an inspiration to many of us.

Online tributes have been posted by Ginger and on the NAA’s site.

I know that she continues and will continue to inspire by all the good work she did for our kids and for us--we will all have a lot to do in 2006 and beyond to make up for her tragic loss.

Thank you, Wade, for being part of that important work for all of us.

I am forever so grateful for all the parents who have been advocating before me and who are still. I am grateful for parents like you, Wade who continue to educate and help look for the answers to make a better life for our children.

I am sure that Liz will continue to advocate and guide us from Heaven. I pray for her family to find the strength to continue the journey.

And I wish you and your family the Happiest 2006 with much more growth and progress for your little guy!!!!
