Oct 7 – Grace Lee Boggs + October 5 at age 100

Wednesday, October 7,   “If there’s any image of her that’s lasting, it’s not of her talking, it’s of her listening to people.”
Shea Powell, Oakland University

One of Detroit’s compelling leaders died over the weekend at age 100.  Many readers of this list know her and many do not.  In either case today’s post is not a poem in the ordinary sense.   Nancy Kaffer, a Detroit Free Press columnist, wrote a eulogy that opens the reader to perceive grace everywhere,  but especially, because of Grace, all over the city of Detroit.

Blessings on  your Wednesday.
