I first met Sarah in May at the Mississippi Street Fair. We were both there to register voters and had unknowingly set up our tables right next to each other. She approached me with her great smile to talk about 100% Portland and her participation vision. I immediately liked her. I sensed in her a rare combination of intelligence, dedication, kindness, and humor and knew I wanted to work with her. We worked together for 100% Portland for a couple of months. I can't say how lucky and honored I feel to have had that time with her. She was a hopeful light in this world and re-inspired my own hope for the possibility of a better future. Though she's gone, I firmly believe that she will continue to shine out into the world through all the many lives that she so beautifully touched. Here's to you, Sarah Bishop, who said yes when nobody asked.

“Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Meade
