A great person has gone today and it was kind of expected. He was getting elderly but he never seemed to loose his joy. He has done so much for peace. He was peace personified. In fact I grew up with his name quite high if not the highest as a synonym to the word peace. I did not know him but I knew of him.
I am glad that all the pictures we are seeing of him on the news are happy ones. Today is a happy day despite the sadness. This a celebration of his life. This world is richer from having had him and he will long be remembered. Yes it is sad that he has gone but he will stay in our hearts forever.
