I found this article on AOL news this morning, and I was shocked when I found out it was about Dawn Wilcox who, as some people on GDC and GDA may know from her work organizing the "Green Day Across The World" project a few months ago. I just thought I'd bring this to attention because I find it really sad. For me, this is the closest instance of having an article in the news be about someone I knew of (I saw her at the American Idiot musical also), so I thought it was important news to mention

:o Poor her :(
It's sad to hear about these things anyway, but even more so when it's about someone you know...

While this is quite awful, I don't see much point in having a thread about it. The most people can do right now is offer condolences and words of support, which would be more rightly done on her Facebook page found here.

I myself have spent a fair amount of time with Dawn, both in February and in April, and some of the comments made on that site really anger me. Judging people and the limitations of their disability, or what she 'should've' done, without even knowing the whole story. Alas, such is the way of life.

It was nice of you to make a thread, but if she wanted to, she probably would've done herself. Seeing as she lied to get a lower fare, I'm not surprised she didn't.
