“Today is not the day” you wrote so eloquently. “Today is Not the Day” — that day came on l7 November l992. Now Your Day is every day. Your bold writings, your determination to face down fear continues to embolden our vision and inspire courage and activism on every front.
Our hearts are with you, enhanced and encouraged by you in the world and in our lives — as we stormed the barricades, shoulder to shoulder across all differences and divides. At the core — our loving family and lavender memories!
