It's actually not a date I have memorized. I didn't even realize it was four years ago tomorrow until I looked at the picture in my room at my parents house. I'm wasn't sure what posessed me to do what I did at the time. I called local alumni for support, emailed Regional Directors for help, and in the end I was granted approval by not only Grand Council but my chapter, Arkansas Alpha.
I realize now why I wanted it sobadly. It was something in the "now." I knew she might not see me do a lot of things throughout my life, but she had seen me be a Pi Phi. So, on October 22, 2005, as President I would initiate her with a ritual that is even more dear to me now.
This weekend is the Centennial Anniversary Reunion for Arkansas Alpha. I wish she were going with me, but I'll be wearing her pin over my heart all weekend.
