Still thinking about what an amazing person we lost today.

There is no question Mary Tyler Moore could turn the world on with her smile — it was dazzling and infectious. But there was so much more to her role as Mary Richards on the long running television show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Moore played a thirty something single television news producer, dealing with issues like equal pay and birth control. Things that were WAY ahead of the time. She was a pioneer.

She was warm, yet independent….the epitome of a working woman…she inspired generations of women with her grit and determination.

That opening song rings in my head – she’s gonna make it after all….even to this day, that ambition is still timely, yet timeless.
