Harper Lee has passed away today. I admire her as a writer and a woman, and of course for her books. She changed people in ways I doubt she even realized. I remember reading TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD when I was a teenager nad thinking: this is what a voice is. This is courage. To take pen to paper and lift up your voice for the right, even when the majority voices it to be the wrong, that is when heros are separated from the masses. She was a hero.
May the memory of her be good and last for all time.
