Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
Deep peace of the Light of the world to you

Thank you for making this world a better place. We are lost without you!

I feel so badly for Kirsten and her family. I am sure she will be sadly missed by everyone who knew her. I respect that she tried to make the world a better place. Kirsten and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Kirsten a few times at her cousin Anja's birthday parties in high school. She was very sweet and kind and a lot of fun to be around. I live near SF and look forward to checking out the Really Really Free Market - an awesome legacy she has left behind.

I met Kirsten back in high school and we shared a few AP classes together. We hung out on the quad. After high school I lost touch with her but then found her again via Myspace. I was planning on visiting her in spring or summer of 2009 in San Francisco with my husband and son. I looked forward to seeing her work with the Really Really Free Market. She was always one of those people who was passionate about life and the well being of others. What she did for people in the few years she was here with us all was truly amazing. Her thoughts and ideas were big, but her actions were bigger. When people say actions speak louder than words, Kirsten's actions were practically shouting. Kirsten's memory will live in all our hearts and her work will live on in the lives of all who she touched in her journey through life. I miss you Kirsten, even though I didn't get to visit you after high school, I'll always remember my favorite memories of you as the AP Art History field trip and the crazy fun we had at the Getty that day. I know you will smile down on us all from Heaven and finally get to see as a spectator all that you have done for others around you, in between arranging info groups for all the other angels in Heaven. :) May you rest in peace.

Love, Jenny

Kirsten was a beloved and inspiring individual. she will be missed greatly. I was there for the first really really free market and remember giving her ideas and bouncing other projects. In her own right she was a prodegy and genius and pioneer of social transformation. There are many whom hold her in loving memories still....

Your spirit will continue to live on. I am reminded of Oscar Wilde quote, "It is thru disobedience and rebellion that progress has been made".

Thank you Kirsten. The world is a little better because of you.

What a terrible loss for our world. We were all so lucky to have Kirsten in our midst. My thoughts are with Kirsten's family and friends during this dark time.

I'm am so sad! Kirsten Brydum (friend & fellow New College Alumna) killed in New Orleans Current mood: sad Category: News and Politics

I'd like to start off by saying that Kirsten was a goddess. The world sparkled when she was around and she was an amazing organizer. We were constantlyly sending emails back and forth about things the two of us were organizing. Volunteers Needed for PAgan Festival I'd write her. AccessCafe help she'd write back. We met at New College at one of the sewing nights (they had a catchy name I cant remember now) and we discussed artisitc patching, anarchism and how fun it was to connect over sewing. I really liked her. We had a class or two together, but she was an active participant in the New College community, and I saw her around often. I'm running out of words to say what I am feeling and I'm crying again and I'm at work so I really need to get it together and get some work done. I just think it's twisted that my last blog was about Last Rites for New College and now someone I knew and really really though was amazing and majikal and spunky is now getting her own last rites. May the goddess' vengeance be swift and merciless against her murderer.

Hello, I am not a friend of Kirsten. I just read the news today and felt sad for her family and friends and this world. We will be without a "GOOD HEARTED" person. I just find it sad that someone would do such a thing to a good person like her. I just want to send my sympathies to her family and friends. Sincerely, Greta

God always takes the good ones for himself. Peace be with those who mourn Kirsten's loss.

I have read the journal entries, and have found them to be beautiful, thoughtful and evocative. Our world has lost an amazing young women, who may have changed our world for the better. I wish I could have known her. Her journal entries have enlightened me, and as a child of the 60's I am grateful for Kirsten and all who will carry the torch. Peace to you Kirsten and to your family, near and far.

So sorry for your loss -- people here are devastated about what happened to Kirsten. Senseless and tragic.

10-03-2008 10:57 AM -- By: Brian Moon,  From: Phoenix  

I didn't know you, Kirsten, but wish I had... You are an inspiration. Your story needs to be shared. Your passion, continued.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends in their time of need. Rest in peace.

10-03-2008 10:51 AM -- By: William Passero,  From: San Rafael, CA  

I'm so sorry for your loss and for this tragedy. It is so difficult to make a difference in this world, that most of us just go along for the ride. I did not know Kristen but read about her in today's paper. I offer my deepest respect to the memory of Kirsten for fighting the good fight and for following her conscience. She obviously lived in a higher place and her example can help others to rise up as well. I am sure that she will be missed. I am sad with you today. May you find comfort in her memory. WP

I would like the thank the family of this remarkable young woman for alowing me a chance to tell her thank oyu for changing the world and leaving her imprint. My daughter too left this world at a young age Kaliah Harper was a Richmond Police officer killed by an aquaintance. Your daughter and friend to many will always be remembered for her acts of thoughtfullness and kindness.

Mr. and Mrs. Brydum and Family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. What a bright light the world has lost. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you begin your lives without Kirsten. I will pray for your strength.

10-03-2008 9:58 AM -- By: Terry Bisson,  From: New College  

I remember her well from the Utopian lit class I taught at New College. As my experience and her journals show, Kirsten was far from naive: a smart, tough-minded, realistic pilgrim soul. We all lost her but I ache for those who knew and loved her well.

10-03-2008 9:34 AM -- By: deedra,  From: new orleams  

This is a very tragic loss, a young woman that was full of life, ideas and compassion. Her life may have been short but her work as an activist will continue on for a long time. My condolences to her "family" and I honor her work for social change.

10-03-2008 9:32 AM -- By: Noah Chandler,  From: Berkeley  

I did not personally know you Kirsten but I am deeply saddened by this news. It is clear that the lives you touched will shine brighter. Rest in peace...

10-03-2008 8:34 AM -- By: Jess,  From: San Francisco  

My condolences to us all. Her spirit will live on in the wonderful acts and people she touched. Wish I would have met this wonderful soul. Rock on Kristin!

10-03-2008 8:24 AM -- By: Ann,  From: San Francisco  

What a senseless loss of an amazing person. May she rest in peace.

10-03-2008 4:29 AM -- By: Kevin Cupit,  From: Colorado  

What a tragedy! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

This is horrible news to me. Condolences to her family.

10-03-2008 4:10 AM -- By: JPHIV,  From: SF  

I never met Kirsten, but every day I see the broken she was trying to fix. The enormity... the epic scale of what's wrong with this world and the bravery it takes to stand up against it is enough to show me how much we lost when Kirsten Brydum was killed. I didn't have to meet her to know that she was a good person, but I wish I could have anyhow.
