Justin was such a remarkable young man that touched so many people’s hearts in our community. The loss of a child is the most horrific thing that can happen to a parent, in my opinion. What can I do to honor him and have him remembered? This is the answer that I and some of my wonderful group of ladies that have held me up during my rocky journey. One was creating a Facebook page for Justin. I write letters to him, post pictures, write stories about my life with him and little fun facts. We have a balloon launch happening where we can celebrate Justin’s life and raise money for the memorial scholarship fund given in his name. I have created the “Be a Hero” campaign based on the amazingly positive qualities that he possessed. Justin was a hero in many ways and lived his life honorably and with integrity. I want to get with our schools and work with the small children to help those that need that extra help. I always talk about Justin, everywhere I go. I was in a local shop and the clerk and I was talking about Justin and what had happened to him. She brought up the July 4th parade, or 5th in our town. I wasn’t sure if this was a good idea at first. Would people think I was trying to get recognition or make a show out of what happened? With much thought and consideration, after talking with my friends, I decided to promote the “Be a Hero” campaign. The point of this blog is that Justin left such a positive legacy that I feel compelled to keep it going and help other young people live their lives in such an honorable manner. I am so blessed to have a wonderful child that made good, healthy choices. Justin Back led by example. What have you done to continue the positive legacy your loved one left behind?
