A Concert for Katherine

3 Apr

Headlines around the world told of the murder of 24-year-old Katherine Ann Olson, whose life was cut short while answering a Craigslist posting for a nanny job on October 25, 2007. This was the first murder in connection to the popular internet site that draws 25 million visitors per month. A beautiful, brilliant, faith-filled, compassionate young woman who had so much potential was killed that day.  The Twin Cities community was shocked by this senseless murder as were national and global communities—cards from every continent were sent to the Olson family. National media headlined this story for a week. Television producers from both coasts called the Olson family in tears, saying that either they or their young adult children used Craigslist frequently.

Nearly 3,000 people attended Katherine’s visitation and funeral. One guest at the visitation tearfully stated, “I have never cried so hard for someone I didn’t know.” The heinous nature of the crime broke a sense of trust held by the community. However, Katherine’s legacy is not based on fear; instead, it is focused on hope.

The above excerpt comes from a website dedicated to Katherine.  Please show your support with donations through the website (accessed by clicking on the photo above) or attending the show.  If both means evade you, happy thoughts and prayers are always welcome.
