Her death is important 

Maryam Mirzakhani died today.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryam_Mirzakhani#
She was a brilliant  mathematician.

I’ve been crying since I learned of her death.
Partly because she was the first woman awarded the Fields Medal. Partly because she loved Riemann. Mostly though- I don’t know.
Some people impinge on your ( by which I mean my) life in unexpected ways.
Mirzakhani meant a lot to me
