R.I.P. Traci Williams

The Washington Post reports the death of Traci L. Williams, who died from cancer at the age of 45. Traci was an actress, arts educator, and Scientologist.

From 1985 to 1995, Traci performed for the "Living Stage Theatre Company" in schools, jails and the juvenile justice system. The company also organized theater workshops for disabled children, troubled teenagers and the incarcerated.

From 1995 until earlier this year, she worked for the Church of Scientology community outreach and education programs.

Traci seemed to have found her way into helping others through her art. Whatever we may think about some of her choices, there is no doubt that she must have put all her heart into it. Ultimately, I believe, that this is what counts.

PS - Her decease is reported in ARS together with some confusing information as to whether she blew from the CoS or not.
