I am sad that it seems to be missed that there is more than just cooking that comes with Julia Child. It is a rare gift to be able to inspire. I am sorry that Julia and her many fans did not see that she must have inspired Julie Powell. It is just as tough in many ways now as it was back in Julia's times. Yes, we could use a little refining at times as people. We have become a bit vulgar as a society but underneath it all there are a lot of good people in need of the wisdom and encouragement that Julia Child provided. I was sad that the two never met. One starting out and the other coming to the end of her days.
