A Letter to A Dear Friend And Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Condolences and prayers for you and your nation and for the world  for the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu our uncompromising horn blowing prophet for justice. A great mortal man who though like all of us in some ways flawed followed the rugged sacrificial  path God carved out for him to be an unflinching moral giant for justice within and outside of South Africa. In  his final years Archbishop Tutu was  scorned by those who resented his unyielding cries for uncorrupted  justice for everyone  who once oppressed themselves fought for a liberty now on the rocks   have lost their way in being stewarts of the good justice governance they were mandated to be. Archbishop Tutu, our distinguished brother in Christ who like all true Christians  do , love everyone, has now gone to get his well earned eternal reward.Let us rise now.  Let us all left behind here  do better in serving humanity in   finally rising up no matter our faith or golden rules of  authentic justice principles.Let us  all rise Now. Like Tubman,Ambedkar, Gandhi,  Bonhoeffer, Huddleston, and  King ,before him , Tutu while joining the everlasting chorus of angels  has left us a glowing light on a hill shrouded in darkness to follow with a well lite road map  in how to live not just for justice but to  justice. Now we all must finally  rise and live justice.
