You have to get so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.- Ladybird Johnson
The racism and bigotry that occurred in Charlottesville led to the death of a young, beautiful, committed activist, Heather Heyer. Heather felt a deep responsibility. It was because she felt so strongly that she was willing to push through fear and show up to stand against the intolerance and bigotry that outraged her. If ever there were someone who represents what it means to live through deeds, rather than mere words, it was Heather.
