I couldn’t let this monumental passing go without acknowledging it. Since we deal largely in sarcastic humor here, I’m not going to attempt a lot of words right now. I just want to say:
Thank you for your life.
No one is born hating another person because of the color of their skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
