My Transformative Angel

As I was having a telephone conversation with someone who I was speaking with for the very first time, we were talking about her work with Prevention of Violence Canada- Prévention de la violence Canada (Facebook link – https://www.facebook.com/preventionofviolencecanada?fref=ts).  She called Amanda a ‘transformative angel’.  I had never heard of Amanda being called that before.  This person went on to explain that Amanda’s time on earth had been pre-determined.  She had chosen the family she was going to be living with for her short 15 years of life.  The date that she left this earth was symbolic – October 10th – World Mental Health Day as designated by the World Health Organization and the World Federation of Mental Health.  

Just the thought of all that makes me get goosebumps.  Then we have things such as this one ….

FLORIDA – Flying out of Vancouver at 10 pm on Monday night to land in Tallahassee (11 1/2 hours later)  at 2:30 pm on Tuesday afternoon.  (Stopovers in Toronto and Atlanta)  Sleeping on the plane is not an easy thing to do.  I have been wondering how sitting on an airplane not doing much of anything can make a person so tired and lethargic.  I will only in Florida for 24 hours and have no time in Florida to enjoy the warmth and sunshine.  I sure wish I could be there longer.

I did try to convince the Attorney General’s office to possibly get other parents in the US that could speak the same words that I will be saying with the exception of Amanda’s story.  They were adamant they wanted me to come.  I will be speaking for 10 minutes at the Attorney General’s 2015 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Commemoration – ‘Engaging Communities – Empowering Victims’.  I was told that Amanda’s story is known in their state and that that there was a group of student leaders who had worked on a video and included Amanda’s story/video so that it would be used for educational purposes for the entire state of Florida.   So after the speak, there will be photos and handshakes.  Then back to airport to catch a flight at 3:30 pm to Edmonton Alberta for two more presentations in Hinton Alberta for Victims Crimes Week there.
