“If she only knew…” Those words punctuated Rob’s address at Love146’s Red Gala last month, referencing the girl who bore the number 146 on her red dress. Sitting at the gala, chills ran down my spine thinking about our namesake. If she only knew that we wore red that evening in solidarity with her.
Red symbolized a girl halfway around the world who will probably never know we exist. She will probably never know Rob picked up the defiance shining in her eyes to fight on her behalf. But what if someday she does know? We may not see resolution this side of eternity but someday, someday she will know. That will be a glorious day.
