Edwards Makes Statement

December 7, 2010

UPDATED (5:10 pm): WRAL-TV reports that Elizabeth Edwards has died.

Elizabeth Edwards is home with family and friends in Chapel Hill, NC following news that she's stopped cancer treatments.

Reports indicate doctors advised Edwards that further treatment wouldn't be "productive" and it's believed that she may only have weeks or months to live.

According to People.com, Edwards released this statement Monday via Facebook:

"I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces – my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope. These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that."

"It isn’t possible to put into words the love and gratitude I feel to everyone who has and continues to support and inspire me every day," she continues. "To you I simply say: you know. With love, Elizabeth."

I've been thinking about Elizabeth, her life and these words since I read them last night. Edwards is such a strong woman who has handled a campaign, a life-threatening illness and the aftermath of her husband's infidelity with such grace.

What do you think of her Facebook message?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
