Thoughts and Prayers for Katy Benoit of Delta Theta

As an 'independent' network of Alpha Gamma Delta sisters it saddens me that the blog network has become a 'news source' for when tragedy strikes our sisters, but I think it's important that we know about such events, as these woman are our sisters no matter that we never met them, or that they are miles away, and because of that they are so deserving of our thoughts and prayers.

Monday such tragedy struck Delta Theta chapter at University of Idaho. Alumna Katherine (Katy) Benoit was murdered. Katy was about to start her first year of graduate school at University of Idaho where she also earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I don't feel that is the blog networks place to share further details here, but a simple news search will take you to numerous stories.

Please keep Katy's family, the sisters of Delta Theta, and the University of Idaho community in your thoughts and prayers in this trying time.
