I am saddened that Elizabeth Edwards’ cancer has reached the point that treatment no longer is an option.
Whatever her politics, she didn’t deserve the cards she was dealt in life by an unscrupulous husband and disease.
I wish her well in her final months.
Update 5:48 p.m.: I didn’t realize the end was so near based on the news reports this morning. Elizabeth Edwards passed away this morning, right around the time of my original post. I’m not sure why this has affected me so much; perhaps it’s the thought of how she must have felt knowing that the person she loved the most and to whom she was so devoted had betrayed her. I hope she found peace in those final moments.
