[eDebate] 10 years---I miss you Becky

Thank you everyone for posting these thoughts today.  Although it was a punch in the gut to even see the first subject line and realize that it has been ten years, this moment of reflection (and, yes, DP is correct...anger) was so, so needed. 

 

I did not know Becky nearly as well as some of you, but she left an imprint on me each and every time we interacted.  For a lot of us, her memory is front and center when we are faced with a crisis and we need to call on  a model in how to handle it with grace, dignity, and perseverence.  No one embodies those traits to me more than Becky...

I couldn't say anything as powerful as what's already been said, but I cherished every moment with Becky including our debates, and I still think about her all the time.
