After a lifetime of work dedicated to helping the "poorest of the poor," Mother Teresa died Friday at the age of 87 of a massive heart attack. For 50 years she provided warmth and comfort to whomever was in need: starving Ethiopians, radiation victims at Chernobyl, homeless people dying on dirty streets. Her charity earned her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Join Ray Suarez and guests on Talk of the Nation for a remembrance of the life of Mother Teresa.
