She was the only person to die as a result of the Atlanta Olympic Bombing. She had driven 3 hours from her home in Albany, GA to give her 14 year old daughter a special birthday present. A night of dancing with the world was the plan at Atlanta's Olympics.
Eric Rudolph has accepted full responsibility for the Atlanta bombing. Guilty is his plea. He will be jailed for the rest of his life, but...what about Alice Hawthorne? She has already become a footnote in the media's story about the tragedy at the olympics.
There was another way to protest the abortion of innocent of the womb, but someone else will have to figure that out. Rudolph says his method of protest was justified because abortion is being carried out on the innocent everyday in our republic.
However, what in the world were you thinking about Eric Rudolph? Was not Alice Hawthorne an innocent whose life was aborted by your actions?

A fitting tribute for Olympic Games victim
Atlanta remembers bomb victim with prayers
This post is a promise I made to Alice Hawthorne in the days following the Atlanta Olympic Bombing. You see... I was in that very park the night she died. I can vividly recall running frantically to safety amidst the chaos and screams. People were running while talking to each other. Sharing whatever information they had to offer. Rumors of bombs going off throughout Atlanta abound.
Eventually, I got home and began to gather a fuller picture of the tragedy as I watched the news with the rest of a stunned world. I promised that I wouldn't forget her and this is my tribute. I hope that you take the time to view some of the links provided about Alice Hawthorne. And maybe now she can finally rest in peace... Now her murderer has been brought to justice.
In this country, we put you in jail for using violence to achieve social justice. Shame. We should put Eric Rudolph to death for what he did. Shame. Take that to the bank...World!
I didn't forget Alice.
Update(4/14): Rudolph aborted the other planned explosions after the death of Alice Hawthorne.
