You can’t pass by the corner of Montezuma Street and Gurley in downtown
Prescott, Arizona, without noticing the loving tribute to Kayla Mueller, the
hometown girl taken hostage by ISIS whose death was recently confirmed by her family.
Personal notes, beautiful white roses with a sign that says “Please Take One for Kayla,”
balloons, stuffed toys and a pink hat have been placed around a simple sign.
We saw people pausing and remembering Kayla for being brave and having a
spirit that moved her to go on her personal journey of purpose.
Her close friend Eryn Street spoke about Kayla’s devotion to humanitarian causes
this week in azcentral.com. “I’m not yet sure how to live in a world without Kayla,
but I do know we are all living in a better world because of her.”
