with eyes open wide
I am embarrassed to say that I had never heard of Susan Sontag until reading this short article (link below). What a powerhouse woman! She is inspiring.
In case you as well have never heard of Susan, sadly she passed away in 2004 at the age of 71, but her legacy continues to live on through her 17 books and now a beautiful documentary that Nancy Kates directed (debuting Fall 2014). Susan was very passionate about speaking out about the wrongs of society. She loved to travel the world and be in the action, even in dangerous worn-torn areas.
I hope you can catch the documentary this fall on HBO!
