Laura Hershey, disabilities activist and poet
Inspired by troubleinchina's posting of Hershey's poem "You Get Proud by Practicing" and further reading, I've created a wikipedia article about her. Very impressive woman who was an amazing writer and activist despite her spinal muscular atrophy. Sadly, she died last Friday, but I encourage you to go read about her and read her work.

Help completing the article would also be welcomed.
