for Maddie

The blogosphere is a little smaller today, as Heather and Mike (@mamaspohr) have lost their darling little toddler, Maddie.  Their web site is crashing like crazy with all the well-wishers, but here’s a tribute from a friend, along with a call to action.

I like the call to action.

So often, we feel so helpless in the face of so much loss.  This page gives us something to do about it.

Because when death comes too soon, it is okay to respond not just with sadness, but with anger and determination.
