I've been thinking about Elizabeth Edwards and all she's endured this past decade. I read this morning that she is very ill and treatment is no longer appropriate. By all reports she was still in good spirits and making the most of the time she had left, expected to be not more than a couple months at most. I write "had," not "has," as the Washington Post has just announced her death this afternoon.
Good bye to a brave woman and a warrior for human rights, and especially the rights of those less privileged.
She is already missed.
