I got some sad news last week. Helen Henderson, who wrote a column on disability issues at the Toronto Star, died last weekend.

Whenever I would stumble across one of her columns, I always thought it was well-written and didn’t beat around the bush. She knew how to fight and just be honest about the issues a lot of us deal with all the time. I can’t find it, but I swear she wrote a really good one about silly things people do, like talk to us in the third person. Here’s one I could find, although they’re a little difficult to track down. I guess this is normal since she has been retired for 7 years.

Damn, another fierce advocate is gone, but she had one heck of an impact while she was here.
