Maria Shriver Did Not Deserve This
I do not pretend to know how it all went down between Arnold and Maria, but I recently got the chance to spend a little time at Maria’s last Women’s Conference and Walk for Alzheimer’s benefit in Long Beach 2010.
Maria was wonderful and everyone that worked around her seemed to love her. She worked very hard to make this Governor’s Office event, one the biggest and most successful it had been since it was established by California Governor George Deukmejian in 1985.
She was everywhere and totally involved and approachable. They seemed happy together and so normal. It was great being around them. I am not going to go into details of the whole mess, but I did want to say that I really feel for Maria and the family and the humiliation they must be going through right now.
I do not want to judge anyone on a single act, as we all seem to have some baggage somewhere, but it is sad to me when people that should be heroes fall so far. Hopefully it will remind all of us that the decisions we make day to day do have repercussions.
I have added some pictures I took at the California Women’s Conference.
