A Giant Has Left Us

A giant left us today. Rarely has there been such a potent example of the non-violent protest of injustice as that of Nelson Mandela. During 27 years of unjust imprisonment, long after most of us would have succumbed to irreversible bitterness, he stayed the course and thereby maintained his voice. That voice continues to reverberate and must not be silenced.I'm reminded of the words of another giant: "This is a cause for which I am willing to die; but there is no cause for which I am willing to kill." - Gandhi
