"…But we can perhaps remember--even if only for a time--that those who live with us are our brothers; that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek--as we do--nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can."

"...Surely, this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men. And surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our own hearts brothers and countrymen once again…”

I was in Spain when he died and it was all over the papers. Never heard of him that much, though. He seemed to have done a great deal of good in the world. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

A true case of not letting devastating events define or incapacitate you.
