In memory of my elderly neighbor, who is having a memorial service today. I will miss her, although I am glad I no longer have to report when I am going to be away overnight! She was well-informed, and I am told, quite politically active when younger. I would routinely tell her to write letters to the editors, letters to politicians, etc, to express her views. But she never did, which was a shame because she knew what she was talking about, and would have been a good voice for peace and social justice. But she did not say things publicly, and said that she would not even correct her friend's incorrect perceptions.
