The Long Walk Marches On

The Long Walk Marches On

My heart aches for your passing but sings with joy with your greatness. You started a long walk to freedom and kept on waking; even after finding freedom, you continued your march for human justice. You are a titan among men, a Mohandas Gandhi, a Martin Luther King, Jr. Though I bid you farewell, Madiba, you will be in the hearts of people everywhere – most important, children.

The New York Times cover is right not to mention the word “death” on its eloquent front cover.
