Today would be Ira Yarmolenko's 21st birthday

A year ago today, Ira Yarmolenko was celebrating her 20th birthday. A few days earlier, I was ribbing her about just being a teenager (even though I'm sure she was more mature than I was.)

She was murdered three days later. It is sad to think this was her last birthday. Maybe it's better to think about what was said about this birthday party at ncwanted.com:

"Investigators say her friends had thrown a party for “Ira,” but in keeping with her character, Ira had cooked for everyone at her own party."

That was Ira. It's as important to remember things like that about her life as it is to remember her death.
