Akyra Monet Murray
Barely 18 years old, Akyra had just graduated from her Philadelphia high school with honors. In fact, she was in Orlando with her family celebrating the occasion when she'd gone to Pulse with her brother as part of the festivities. Akrya was an outstanding athlete, she received a full-ride scholarship to play basketball at Mercyhurst College. Her undeniably bright future was cut short moments after she called her mom begging to be picked up from the nightclub because there was a shooter on the lose.
In honor of Akyra, today I'm focusing on my own vitality and I encourage others to do the same. Akyra was robbed of her vitality in a horrific act of terrorism but we still have ours. Embrace it. Celebrate it. DO NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.
Spread the love, guys, we're strong enough to do this.
