At such a low time for all of us, I think this can serve to renew and inspire us again to work for women's rights and choice. They were amazing women who did so much for us, while never asking for anything in return.

I feel lucky to have been inspired.

These things always happen in threes. The passing of Al Lewis should also be noted. His politics was not as notable as the three you mentioned. However, he made an impressionable run as a third party candidate a few years back in the NY gubenatorial race. His platform focused on NYs draconian drug laws and the death penalty.

I'd never heard of him, but anyone against draconian drug laws and the death penalty is my kinda guy.

You probably know Mr. Lewis from one of his other persona's. In the early 1960's he played "grandpa" on the "Munsters." While that role is how most people know him (or even his role on "car 54 where are you"), he's later forays into politics is quite interesting.

Many fascinating people who contributed so much passed this past week.

I just got an email from NOW with a little article on Coretta Scott King. They included a great quote from her. At the NOW National Conference in 1978 she said:
"So let us continue to work together, because when we are together there is a kind of strength that we get from each other, and when we are right, as we are, then we certainly will win our causeā€¦ Therefore, my sisters, let us walk together, and don't get weary."
