Today this badass woman is asking for your indulgence. Recently we said our last goodbyes to my brother on a hilltop in Washington.
If you have read my personal profile on womensvoicesmedia.org, you know that my passion for much of my life has been feminist causes. One of my major frustrations was the lack of ability to reach more people and be a part of building a coalition large enough to make a difference in this country.
My brother, Reid Cornwell, gave me the opportunity – the tool – to address my frustration. Because of his knowledge and skills and his desire to help me make my dream come true, www.womensvoicesmedia.org became a reality. Without him, it would have never happened. He not only provided hundreds of hours of work, he provided them with a passion while continually encouraging me. I will be eternally grateful for all he did.
I am not sure, without him, I can meet the high bar he set but I am going to keep trying.
For those of you who indulged me by reading this tribute to the end, I hope you are fortunate enough to have someone like Reid in your life.
