    MaggieD Day

    I'd like to announce that DP has officially marked July 9th as 'MaggieD Day' to remember MaggieD and the impact she had on so many. She unfortunately passed away after her brave fight against cancer on 12/19/2017. She impacted a lot of people of every political persuasion and we feel it is best to remember her on her join date.

    Oh wow....I'm sorry to hear this. Maggie and I hardly ever agreed on anything...occasionally....but I always enjoyed her posts and appreciated her responses. She will be missed...absolutely.

    OMG!

    Having had a very close relationship with a cancer victim until the moment of their demise, I am amazed to see that Maggie was communicating and debating until the very end. I'm shocked, really. I never imagined her illness had progressed to such a point, because it was never seen in her posts. She never complained. Her strength and perseverance was remarkable, as can be seen by how she carried herself until the very end.

    While I never met her in real life, the dignity she carried in her on-line life as she worked through her illness was both remarkable & inspirational. "Dignity" indeed, is the first word that comes to mind when describing Maggie. I only hope to comport myself in the example she displayed, when I am confronted with life's ardent adversity.

    This memorial day to celebrate her life, is wholly appropriate. I can't think of anyone more deserved, and I fully support it.

    May she rest in eternal peace, and may her friends and loved ones find acceptance.

    Very classy move by DP. Maggie was an extraordinary individual. Her blog entries should be preserved as well.

    You signature has always been a mantra to me to get through hard times, and so it shall continue to do so. I always remember the advice you gave me when I was losing my mind and had to be committed, it has also been a light at the end of a long tunnel. Rest in peace. We will meet someday.

    Thank you so much for this. So many of us loved Maggie dearly, and will never forget her sweet spirit and loving nature. I'm so grateful that DP is honoring her in this way.

    She was definitely one of our more “iconic” members so this definitely seems appropriate.

    Di - I think Maggs knows about this, and she is a smiling.
    The disease that took her is horrid, and we know the troubles she faced, and faced head on. Yet she kept on fighting, kept on dropping in and posting. Her passing took me and many others by complete surprise.
    Thanks Red, this is a beautiful thing that DP has done.

    Re: MaggieD Day

    Maggie was....

    ...poise and grace under pressures no one should have to go through, and which would have broken most the rest of us into bitter, angry, self-absorbed....

    ...but not Maggie. She was good and kind through it all. Under stress, someone's core shines through. That was hers.

    Thank you, DP - this is a good decision. May she be an annual example to us to Be Better.
