I loved Shirley Temple and I’m sad that she’s left this world.
I am also sad that every image I’ve seen of her, barring one posted on the Disney Parks Blog, has been of little, golden ringleted child actress Shirley.
Do you know how amazing this woman was?
She was an United Staes Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. During the Cold War!
She was the first female Chief of Protocol!
She had a radical mastectomy, cause guess what, she survived breast cancer! When no one talked about breast cancer at all, cause breasts!
She was so much more than that little girl with the song and dance and I hope she is remembered for her strides in the social and political worlds as much as her film career.
