"SOMETHING THAT IS LOVED IS NEVER LOST"
This will be brief for I am fresh in my grief for this outstanding scholar, novelist, intellectual, Nobel Prize Winner, Pulitzer Prize and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. I remember several years ago, a family friend lamented when a well-known celebrity had transitioned and I'm paraphrasing...send the ushers and bring the smelling salts!

The saving grace is her legacy of superb novels, *academic and *philosophical writings and her love for a people horrifically displaced, who struggled and attained heights that dared to challenge oppressive tactics and moved on for the greater good. I've read that she is and was a National Treasure, for now, I'm not ready to fully let her go, so my feelings are with the former.
