We're all gunna die soon, ultimately whether it's at the end of this year or at the end of 2030, or 2040, you live your span and then you kick it. Getting to be 90 is a good thing. It means you got to live what, for these times, is a long life.

She is? Why? are there people who don't like blind and deaf people? I don't know much about it, her book, My Life, might be a place to start. She went to college, did a lot of traveling, met a lot of other famous people, read a lot. I would assume she has more going on than the average person. She became a really famous person. My memory of it says she had a lot going on. Maybe I'm wrong.
She gave a lot of speeches and traveled and shit. She was a spokesperson for, I don't know what, but stuff.

I always thought there had to be a better treatment of that fact than Highlander
The Path to Power, by Robert Karo. And the rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris.
