Apologies for my site the past couple of days; it seems to be having a major temper tantrum. I’m working to resolve the problem.
On July 28, there will be an event at the Edge Ice Arena (in Littleton) to honor Jessica Ghawi. For more information, here is the facebook page, and the MHH post that informed me of it. There is also a scholarship fund being set up in Jessica’s name (presumably for aspiring female sports writers). The goal of $20,000 has already been surpassed, but if you feel inclined to donate, please do so.
The Colorado Avalanche have yet to announce how they will honor Jessica and the other victims, though I am imagining it will come some time during the beginning of the season. Other teams in the area have also paid their respects. During one of the Colorado Rockies (MLB) home games, they held a moment of silence for all of those affected by the tragedy. They also put the names of the 12 dead on the big screen. Most impressive, however, was the Denver Broncos (NFL) decision to visit all of the hospitals and reach out to patients, and the healthcare providers in person. Lead by Peyton Manning, a rather large contingent of players spent the day speaking with patients, and giving thanks to the doctors and nurses who have done so much since the shooting occured.
