I see what Elizabeth goes through, and tries to put it aside to keep writing. I worry about her. But this is what she wants to do. She wants to make a difference. I see her dizzy, in pain, struggling, and it makes me feel so helpless. She is open, and honest and gets hurt because of it. She is the most caring person I know. She feels and cares more about other people, aches with them, than any other person I know. I see her so weak, so stubborn, she can't lift her head and she's still worried or upset about helping someone else while I am helpless to help her.
The voting goes until January 20th and you only need to vote once. So if you haven't already done so, it would be great if you could vote for Beth's blog in the following categories:
Please also spread the word on your blog if you think it is appropriate. She says she doesn't want to win but to know writing about people being equal matters. That's why she writes about the child with autism, and trans kids, caregivers, disability rights, intersex, lesbian lives, about what being ill and helpless feels like. The films and books she reviews are part of that life.
