Merle Fleming is an inspiration to all and should be remembered as someone who faced lifes challenges with the will to make positive changes no matter what obsticles stood in her way. However, she WAS a politician and you do her a disservice by not paying tribute to that aspect of her life. Merle is a wonderful example as someone who could be political without compromising her high moral standards. Merle provided a voice for those who needed a voice to be heard. This is the type of politicans that we need today!

All I meant by "Merle wasn't a politician" was that she wasn't an elected official. She was a brilliant policy maker, but not a career politician in the typical negative sense of the word.
