For personal reasons, I have avoided this story since +Lorelle Jones
told me about it. This morning I finally read the whole story with tears in my eyes. Brittany is absolutely incredible.. Her bravery in facing cancer, and willingness to subject herself to the ridicule of all the ignorant, self-righteous, pieces of shit who are criticizing and condemning her, make Brittany Maynard my hero.
My voice isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but my words, my writing, will live forever. I'm going to find a way to honor this woman in book five of +The Warrior Chronicles
. It may be a small character who makes a big sacrifice, or one who becomes one of Cort's Marines. Maybe it will just be a memory of someone who knew her. But Brittany Maynard will be immortalized by my words.
