It has been a long time since I have written anything here. I have been focusing on living in the moment. Many incredible events have happened. Making the decision to live my mission statement, which is, to model the power of perseverance with hope and inspiration everywhere, has helped me to step out of myself and help others to do the same.
I recently received a clearance letter to visit one of the men responsible for my son, Matt's murder. This is an opportunity for me to move forward on my own personal life journey. I'm not sure when I will go, but I will go to San Diego to meet with him. There is a appellate court hearing for both Gene Combs and Henry Don Williams for their appeal cases, on July 2,(which happens to be one of Matt's sisters birthday) in San Francisco. I will be there.
The Matt Garcia Foundation is doing great. The work that I and so many others put into making the foundation successful in helping others has been amazing. The thousands of supporters that we have is simply incredible. My heart smiles constantly because I know that Matt is smiling down on us.
My work for Kaiser is great too. I have been with Kaiser for 13 years and I couldn't be prouder of this company. They help so many. We are working hard to become Solano County's Trauma 2 Center. I have thought about what may have happened differently, if anything, had Kaiser in Vacaville been a Trauma 2 Center when Matt was shot? I don't dwell on that question, because it is pointless. Although, I think about how having a trauma 2 center at Kaiser Vacaville will absolutely save lives.
I will continue to live my passion which is helping others find their passion. Modeling the power of perseverance with hope and inspiration everywhere.
Living in gratitude,
