For Autumn

This week I visited Autumn Pasquale’s memorial in Clayton, NJ. Autumn, 12, was reported missing last Saturday and then found dead 2 days later, murdered by two Clayton teenagers for her BMX bicycle. The memorial is located where her body was found, not far from her home. Autumn would have been 13 this past monday.

Clayton neighbors Glassboro and is a small rural community of about 8,000 that has been utterly shocked by the crime. The spirit of Glassboro means embracing our neighbors in times like this and therefore I’d like to dedicate this post to Autumn and offer my deepest condolences to her friends and family.
