I was sorry to hear about the passing of Wangari Maathai. According to reports, Ms. Maathai passed away in hospital while undergoing treatment for cancer.

Ms. Maathai had been featured on CNN several times in recent years. She was profiled in Revealed, and was a Connector of the Day on Connect The World. I remember the latter fondly as one of my questions was selected for her and answered on air.

It's always sad to note the passing of someone who made a big contribution to the lives of others.

I just heard Rosemary mention this on World Report. I remember seeing her on CNN in the past. I believe she was the first African woman to win a Nobel peace prize. I hate cancer.

Very sad news to wake up to. I saw this tweet from Zain a few minutes ago:

Woke up to the news Kenya's Wangari Maathai has died. She was a friend and an inspiration to me.

Very sad news to learn. I can't believe she was 71! She looked so much younger than that. I hope CNN replays her Revealed episode this week now.
