This made me very sad, and caused me to spend a time in reflection today, over the state of Humanity on earth.
this is from the Washington Post:
"Peter Benenson, an English barrister whose outrage over the imprisonment of two students prompted him to found the human rights organization Amnesty International 43 years ago, died of pneumonia Feb. 25 in London at John Radcliffe Hospital. He was 83.

Mr. Benenson's organization, which now counts 1.8 million members, won the 1977 Nobel Peace Prize for "defending human dignity against violence and subjugation," by focusing on human rights and cases of torture and unjust imprisonment around the world.

Kacy,

I didn't even know that until I read your write in Open.  This is why I said before the world is turning in on itself.

Yes mam a big loss indeed. I always like that you remember and then I get to too.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
