Is Unforgettable

Long before appearing at charity events to create HIV Awareness became the most desirable fashion accessory. Long before people got around to even comprehending the sheer magnitude of AIDS. Long before HIV/AIDS became the most funded healthcare intervention in the world. Long before any of that that, one person spoke out fearlessly about the disease that had claimed the life of her friend.

That woman was Liz Taylor!

I may have fallen in love with her unforgettable violet eyes and almost Rubenisque features, but it was her courage and loyalty that kept me captive. She was unforgettable. Is Unforgettable.

‎"When people say, 'She's got everything', I've got one answer - I haven't had tomorrow."

Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, DBE
(February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011)

Rayna - Elizabeth Taylor was certainly one of the most unforgettable people of recent generations. Not only was she a talented and well-regarded actress (and those eyes!!!), but also, she did what many famous and rich people don't do. She used her name, her money and her "star power" to try to make a real difference in this world. Thanks for remembering her in this way.

Yes, Rayna, thank you. I am grieving in my own way for this loss. I grew up on Elizabeth movies and scandals and then how she used her celebrity to do such good and to help others. She was much more than a Hollywood icon and movie star legend. She was a good person.
