Wangari Wetu

Wangari Maathai, a true Kenyan hero, passed away last night in Nairobi after a battle with cancer.  A Nobel laureate, Wangari was a tireless warrior for conservation, women’s rights and inspired an entire country to take action.  I had the pleasure of hearing Wangari speak in Chicago in 2009 and the honor of shaking her hand that night.  Wangari will certainly be missed but I have no doubt that her legacy will live on.
