It hurts my heart to hear of her passing-even tho I did not really know her. I was signed up for he emails to let me know of things to do like write letters, sign petitions etc so I saw her name and read her words(or someone’s words maybe her assistant?) many many days. I hope that as the leaders who were doing so much pass on, whether thru age or accident like this, many will rise to replace the work of each one so we can fulfill the visions so many like her have worked so hard to realize.
