Town Square

Stasek remembered for her courage, compassion, and accomplishments

Original post made on Sep 30, 2009

Flags flew at half-mast at city buildings Friday through Tuesday in memory of Rosemary Stasek, a former mayor and council member who died in Kabul, Afghanistan, last week at age 46. Friends and acquaintances remember Stasek as a committed activist, a brilliant strategist, and a "rebel with a cause." Photo by Michelle Le.

My daughter and I sent clothes for Afghan girls through Rosemary's charity, "a little help". The feeling she gave back, when writing a heartfelt thank you note with a personal touch, is indescribable. The people in Afghanastan have so little, and she gave so much. Thank you Rosemary.

Only since Rosemary died have I learned what an amazing, courageous person this city had. She's really inspired me. See the previous MV Voice article - one of the comments has a link to the NBC story. Also see the SJMN Patty Fisher column from Monday, 9/28/09.

The address for "A Little Help," Rosemary's charity to help Afghan women, is: A Little Help, 241 W. Blaine St., McAdoo, PA 18237

This is truly a tragedy and a great loss.

I feel the best way to honor her is to support the sending of more troops to Afghanistan to clean the country up and make it a better, more secure place for women.
