Betty White brought us so much joy — as a brilliant Password player, Sue Ann Nivens, and Rose Nyland. Yet despite her accolades as “the first woman of television,” she remained humble and kind — for which her peers admired and loved her. She devoted her life to her craft and animal welfare. She was a Democrat and open-minded Christian. I, as many, will miss knowing she is no longer with us. She was such a beloved American icon.
I dread the passing of other universal icons — Queen Elizabeth and Pope Francis. Queen Elizabeth has led a lifelong devotion to her country with a steadfastness, no-drama manner, as opposed to the divisiveness and meanness we see encouraged by the right-wing in our country. And Pope Francis — what a breath of fresh air, a saint? He has done his best to try to bring more compassion and acceptance of all God’s children into the Catholic church.
Let us all be thankful for these wonderful people.
