On: Madiba

I’ve been having a really hard time writing about this. Because, well, what could I possibly say that would to the man justice?

What do you say when a giant of that stature dies? How can you possibly describe the man he was in a way that doesn’t fall short of who he really was and what he really did? Not saying there aren’t people who can do it, but I know better than to imagine I am one of them.

I will say this. While being a man, and therefore flawed, he was a better person under more trying circumstances than we has the right to demand of any human being. And I’d like to think that in being so he made the rest of us slightly better people too.

For that I thank him. And I hope we will someday be worthy of his example.
