The world has lost a remarkable woman. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, I hope we can all agree that the work she did on behalf of people with developmental disabilities was nothing short of heroic. I can tell you first hand that her lasting legacy, The Special Olympics, touches lives in the most profound ways imaginable.

The Special Olympics website has some very moving tributes right now...
