Dee is not here anymore to remind you about going to church or remind you about the promises of Christ. Our right to alter our government must be used to sweep these halls clean of greedy interests so that people may use this government in service to each other's needs and to protect the condition of our earth. Pierogi are dumplings of unleavened dough, first boiled ,then baked or pan fried with butter and carmelized onions.

She attended Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, for three years before marrying James Haddock. During her 1999 walk across the nation, the hat that Haddock was seen in was one that belonged originally to her best friend.One of my favorite pictures of Dee is of her rocking out to Guitar Hero; wielding an axe in hands and determination in her spirit. In 1960, Haddock began her political activism when she and her husband successfully campaigned against planned hydrogen bomb nuclear testing in Alaska that threatened an Inuit fishing village at Point Hope. It's a big portion of that, given that her reasoning for going on her trek across America was to raise awareness around campaign finance reform. When you get a chance, read her journals and you will hear her prayers, her worries, her fears, her heart, her tears, and her anxieties.

Granny D walked roughly ten miles each day for 14 months, traversing California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, making many speeches along the way. Haddock worked closely with state representative Betty Hall, another New Hampshire grandmother, on campaign finance reform. Haddock achieved national fame when, between the ages of 88 and 90, starting on January 1, 1999, and culminating on February 29, 2000, she walked over 3,200 miles (5,100 km) across the continental United States to advocate for campaign finance reform.

Served on a poppyseed bun with mayo, pickles, ranch dressing and topped with a hot cayenne pepper sauce. The couple retired to Dublin, New Hampshire, in 1972, and there, she served on the Planning Board and was active in the community. But, Your Honor, some of us do not have much power, except to put our bodies in the way of an injustice--to picket, to walk, or to just stand in the way.
