Memorial Website for Ambassador Chris Stevens

The family of the late J. Christopher Stevens has established a memorial website and asks for donations to a fund that will help build bridges between the peoples of the United States and the Middle East.

The famly of J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador killed in Libya last week who was a 1978 graduate of Piedmont High School, has established a memorial website at www.rememberingchrisstevens.com. It is meant "to capture the memories of people touched by Chris, far and near," the site says.

"Chris had a passion for building bridges between the people of the United States and the Middle East," the site says. "In this spirit, a fund has been established in his name to support this important, yet unfinished, endeavor."

You may contribute to the fund via Network for Good.

Stevens will also be honored during the half-time program at the Cal Homecoming football game on Oct. 6, according to Deborah Murphy of the University of California, Berkeley's office of university relations. Stevens graduated from UC Berkeley in 1982.

I grew up on upper Lake Shore Ave. and used to play sports at the track (Piedmont High) all the time with other kids from the area. I remember Chris and he was a very kind person. May God rest his soul and bless his family. John M.

When are the parents and family going to demand answers? Why did Chris not get the help they all needed before this attack? Shame on somebody! If that were my son, I'd be all over someone for some answers. This should never have happened!
