A wonderful and dear friend to many, Richard Myers, passed away suddenly, this past weekend. We have lost a lovely and courageous man who worked tirelessly to inspire, and help others. There will be much written, throughout social media, about Richard's capacity for love and his fight for the good. He involved himself in many great causes and supported the basic rights of all.

Any words you wish to share here, will be passed on to his family and friends, or please share your thoughts and stories on  his fb page:

Thousands of us have been friends, and worked closely, with Richard Myers in the fb group, Join The Fight To Flush Rush, The StopRush Project, and the petition, 'Tell 40 Limbaugh Sponsors...' We will finish the job in seeing Rush Limbaugh off public radio, especially now. For we will also be doing this for Richard.

We will miss you dearly, Richard Myers, and we thank you. You have surely bettered this world.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
