Elizabeth Edwards

Elizabeth Edwards was an amazing woman. This statement is so true:

"In her life, Elizabeth Edwards knew tragedy and pain," President Obama said in a statement released by the White House. "Many others would have turned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up. But through all that she endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends."

Elizabeth Edwards endured a lot of pain indeed. Many people would have retreated and hid from the world after going through what she did. Instead, she wrote two books, prepared her family for her death and shared her struggle with others so they could learn from her. Truly, an inspiring woman whose spirit will always live on.
