Extravagant – Well I thought the word was extraordinary at first and this came to mind. In a way I do find this extravagant, that this woman lived to tell a story, and then told it. Later she was awarded a presidential medal of freedom by President Obama. Let more such extravagant people be known, and may we someday adhere to her ideas of tolerance and stop thinking the other is our enemy simply because they are different.

It is to me wonderful this speech, and my favorite quote from it is when she dedicates the win to those who never “lived to see the magic of a boring evening at home.”
