We Owe a Debt of Thanks to Dorothea Dix

Two things to be thankful for this morning:

1) Dorothea Dix and her campaign to get the mentally ill people out of jail. It is obvious that her work was very successful. What is not obvious is whether we are doing a good job of not sending mental illness people to prisons today.

2) The Massachusetts Humanities through Mass Moments keeps reminding us of all the great women who came before us and made the world a better place for us. Check out this article on Dorothea.
