Kendra's sister remembers

Seven years ago this week, Kendra Webdale was killed by a man with untreated schizophrenia. Most readers of this blog and visitors to the website know the sad story well, as it was the final straw in getting New York to finally pass an assisted outpatient treatment law, aptly named “Kendra’s Law.”

This week, NPR brought us a powerful memory from Kendra’s sister, Kim.

Our hearts go out to the Webdales on this sad anniversary, and every day. Ironically, now each day, many lives are being changed – and saved – in New York in Kendra’s name.
