Haiku from the Hand of Desmond Tutu, clergyman

My people, proud and free

I work tirelessly for them

Apartheid is gone.

Simple, sweet, to the point. With such people in the world, we can have hope for every part of humanity. That there is a need for such a person and his work is our greatest lament.

Because there are few acts to follow a Nobel Peace Prize winner, the next choice shall be a little less serious...

The End
