The Death of a Legend

In Uncategorized on March 8, 2012 at 11:30 am

On Wednesday, March 23, 2011, an icon of film, radio and press left us: Elizabeth Taylor. And on Saturday, March 26, 2011, Geraldine Ferraro died.

Both women of incredible courage, grace and poise. Extremely strong and determined. Both were civic activists and policy changers. Elizabeth Taylor, a stunning beauty who had more than 50 movies to her credit. Twice an Oscar winner, once for Butterfield 8 and the other time for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Ms. Taylor was also known for her AIDS activism and for being an outspoken celebrity on many issues. Geraldine Ferraro was a wife, mother and congresswoman who went on to become the Democratic Party’s candidate for Vice President of the United States.

Odd how two seemingly unpretentious and unassuming women changed the world by breaking barriers and empowering young women everywhere.

Both legends will be greatly missed.
