Carole King and Pit Bull: An uncommon good

What can Carole King and Pitbull possibly have in common?


She croons about the earth moving:                           He's the International Love:
I feel the earth move under my feet                        You put it down like New York City
I feel the sky tumbing down                                    I never sleep, wild like Los Angeles
I feel my heart start to tremblin'                             My fantasy, hotter than Miami
Whenever you're around.                                        I feel the heat
                                                                                Oh Miss International Love
                                                                                 Oh Miss International Love

On February 11, from the East Coast to the West and all over the world, people everywhere are showing International Love.  From Turkey to Tokyo to Cairo.  From Virginia, to Florida to Montana to Colorado to Ohio to Iowa - We are moving the earth under our feet, running for Sherry Arnold.  Simultaneously, in complete synchronicity at 9 a.m. (Mountain Time) thousands of people are dedicating their routes to this amazing teacher, wife, mother, daughter, friend and cousin to my Beth. On January 7, Sherry left for her usual run and has not been seen since.  She is presumed dead and two foul, disgusting people are being held in custody for her random murder.  A husband, a parent, a sister, daughter, a son, family, a country, the world is deeply saddened.  But even the most repulsive evil can't stop the earth from moving in love and support for all those so deeply effected by the unspeakable tragedy.   Run, walk, jog, roller blade, skate, dance skip, cartwheel for Sherry and her family on February 11.  
Can we light up the world with international healing love?
Can we make a difference and stop the poison from spreading?
HELL YES, WE CAN.
GOOD IS BETTER THAN EVIL.
WE WILL SHOW THOSE #+@** WHO WINS.
How, you say?!
Move the earth under your feet, baby.  Feb. 11 at 9 a.m (MT). 
Run for Sherry.
That's right.  I'm talking to you.

Be a part of the healing.  Not the hurt. 

Indulge me this little satisfaction:  In the town of Biliston (sp.?) where the SOB's are being held, a huge contingency of runners (aka healers) are moving the earth right near the prison, running right on by for Sherry.   Take that, you scum.  We win.

We all love you Sherry.  We love you Sidney, Montana.  Can you feel it?  You will.  We're moving the earth for you, internationally sending healing love.

If you are in Richmond or Goochland, contact me and I'll hook you up with a bib and deets on where we're putting down 5 miles for Sherry.   Join us or just wear the bib on your own run.
