While I have no intention of sharing my views on Ms. Edward's place in the public spotlight, this one quote of hers is too profound not to share. She was quoted for this statement after the tragic, accidental death of her teenaged son.
"If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died--you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and ...that is a great gift."
~ Elizabeth Edwards
