Elizabeth Edwards

You probably have all heard that Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former Senator and Presidential/Vice Presidential candidate (and heel) John Edwards, has passed away due to breast cancer. I have been really touched by this brave woman who has not only suffered from a hideous illness but was put through a public humiliation by her husband's affair and subsequent spawning with a blonde bimbo. That man put that poor woman through the mill and she braved it out and held her head high. She set her rules and put that creature right in his place. 

She will be remembered unfortunately for that nightmare, but she should also be remembered for raising 4 children, for her work as an attorney for the Office of the Attorney General in North Carolina and the administration of the Wade Edwards Foundation, named for her son who was killed in a tragic automobile accident. The woman had it tough but when you saw her on TV she was always brave, fearless and determined to live every day. 

I was very sad when I heard the news.


  1. I completely agree with you - she is such a strong woman and one that can be held out as an example of strength and grace and courage...As a lot of people have put it today, it doesn't matter where you stand politically, you really do have to admire Elizabeth Edwards for the dignity she had throughout the many things she had to deal with.

    I know I will miss having her in the world - one less strong female figure to show us how we should be...

  2. Well said sweetie.
