Eunice Mary Kennedy Shriver and Rebecca MacKinnon

Just a short shout out to Eunice Mary Kennedy Shriver, who passed away today. Her work shows us how a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a stranger, a member of a distinguished family, can contribute to the betterment of the world. Her belief in the dignity and worth of human life is a gift that we can all learn from. What would this world be without the Special Olympics, which she helped found?

Here is a link to an interview with Rebecca MacKinnon, a highly respected citizen journalist on the internet and its role and limitations in creating a space for democracy and dialogue.
