September 27, 2011 - Hummingbird

Wangari Maathai died on Sunday.  She was a true hero in Kenya and around the world - an environmentalist and passionate advocate for women's rights, who faced many personal hardships fighting for both causes and won a Nobel Peace Prize.  You can read more about her here or, even better, you can read her autobiography, Unbowed.  

This video gives us just a small glimpse of the person she was - 
it is well worth the two minutes it takes to watch the whole thing:
She was a hummingbird, and she can rest now.
