Eloquent and dignified. Her joy is infectious. It’s a fantastic victory. I feel elevated. There is no going back now.

Thanks for posting, that was lovely. But WTF was up with the interviewer? I wanted to slap him. STOP LAUGHING INAPPROPRIATELY AND TOUCHING YOUR MOUTH, WEIRDO!

A great woman. Someone whose life history and ongoing inspiring contributions speak to the best in all of us. She is the friend, mother, grandmother we all have.

I think that she is soooo great, she has had a great life and has so many achievements behind her, I think she is amazing, I agree with you Molly the interviewer is creepy, you are not supposed to act like a bozo for people to see you!

Listening to her is listening to a part of history. Listening to her is even more awe-inspiring than reading her work.
