For Andrea, who compelled awe. I was blessed to know her exquisite
soul, her magnificent being. I will miss her deeply.

On this occasion of such a significant loss of an internationally respected feminist leader, a very private person with a very public persona, a prolific and esteemed author; a fan of country music, a cat-lover, and a person we cared about deeply, as friend, colleague, mentor, and more, you are invited to share your thoughts, feelings, reflections, and memories of Andrea Dworkin and her effect on your personal and public life, community, and the world.

In our grief, and during this time of remembering Andrea's compassion and dedication, we can take some solace in the knowledge that death came to her peacefully while she was asleep. Let us also take solace in sharing with each other the multitude of ways she challenged each of us to be, to act, to live responsibly, and to not comply.

In Sorrow,
