A Man for Our Times

While Desmond Tutu is alive, we have so much to learn from him, so much to gain from his insight and experience.  It strikes me that we in the U.S.--still living with the consequences of slavery and multifaceted racism--have a ton to learn from this great spirit.  It strikes me that friends in Israel, Palestine, Iran--all these peoples too could learn so much from these ideas of 'truth and reconciliation.'  What else is there?  After all.  What else is there?  Truth and reconciliation.
