Ebert was also, in his own way, an activist for people with medical problems. He refused to hide and remained in the public eye after his lower jaw was removed and he could not speak. He also wore a drool cloth. He showed that cancer treatment is not always pretty but it is no reason to hide. I think that was very brave but to him it might have been just another public appearance. He continued to write and someone read his articles on his show. He continued to write and recently was given a prominent place in his newspaper to write about gun violence. He was a complex person but he always seemed to respect the humanity of others.
