Listening to Margaret Trudeau.

Margaret Trudeau’s speech was amazing; more than half the room was in tears by the end of it.  She spoke of her experience as the Prime Minister’s wife and struggling with an undiagnosed mental illness.  She’s bipolar, and a lot of her manic episodes turned into media nightmares when she was First Lady.  Once, during a particularly bad manic episode, she partied with the Rolling Stones and caused a huge scandal.  She also struggled with the ups and downs through 3 hospitalizations and the death of her son.  After her speech, we had the chance to talk with her and get a few pictures.  She was so nice and accommodating…  Now I want to buy her book!
