A Mother’s Love: The Legacy of Samantha Runnion

As you may know, Erin Runnion is a huge inspiration to me. Ten years ago, her daughter Samantha was abused and murdered just a few days before her sixth birthday. Erin wanted her daughter’s life to have meaning, and she has succeeded. She started the Joyful Child Organization, which helps protect kids in so many ways.

Tomorrow would have been Samantha’s 16th birthday. Erin chose this day to let people know of the Joyful Child Organization’s accomplishments. There will be a rally at the Federal Building on Wilshire Boulevard at 10AM. People will learn how to protect their kids, lobby their lawmakers for tighter restrictions on child predators, and, knowing Erin, there will be a positive vibe with plenty of music and food.

Erin has become an outspoken expert, having appeared on TV lately giving her opinions on everything from Jerry Sandusky to the Aurora shootings. When she has something to say, I make sure to listen. For more information, log on to thejoyfulchild.org
