    This took serious courage and conscience. We should all strive to demonstrate even a fraction of this in our life.

    RIP.

    Sadly, few people are willing to confront evil, both great and small. Individuals would rather not get involved and just watch as wrong and illegal actions occur.

    ...Mai Lai, Hiroshima, know what I mean? Same effing lies with depressing frequency, say "we had to do it, keep our lives clean." Who's lives? Who's effing lives? I'll tell you one thing, it ain't me and you. Etc.

    A true hero. Sad to see people like this go...it is also sad that we don't celebrate them more while they are alive.
