One of the giants of our time has passed away. It was not entirely unexpected, but it hurts all the same. He was a moral authority the world stopped to listen to, and we will surely need a man of his spirit, his strength and integrity in the future. Sadly, many of our current political leaders fall short. That is why his passing is also a blow to the world and our struggle to end poverty, discrimination, and oppression.
We will miss you, and I hope that we never forget you and your wisdom. Thank you for being a wonderful role model to thousands of people around the world, in your homeland, and in the future. I truly hope we will make you proud.
