Wangari Maathai

I knew her. I loved her. She hugged me and I knew I was held in the heart of the earth. Her smile still radiates in my mind and her compassion dwarfs my own.

Good Morning All,

Just for fun. Let me make this a class. The assignment is to send me an email on who is Wangari Maathai. She passed to the other side last Sunday, but I know that only her body died. I’d like to know what part of her life each reader of this blog, who chooses to do some research, will carry for awhile for she was a woman of great accomplishments and inspiration.

Thank you for your indulgence in my request.


One thought on “Wangari Maathai”

  1. Thank you, Rolland, for bringing this remarkable woman, Dr. Wangari Maathai, to my attention! She is a modern day hero of great magnitude. In reading her many accolades, I am struck by the small rut my daily life travels when such a purposeful, rich and rewarding life was being lived in giant strides. Dr. Maathai intentionally chose to use her exceptional spiritual and mental talents for so much lasting good. For those of us who say we need more time, money, energy or opportunity to do more good, we’re wrong.
