We talk a lot about movies and cultural artifacts around here, but the world has genuine heroes. Archbishop Desmond Tutu has passed.
The Archbishop's efforts in the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa and his role as ambassador to the world were instrumental in the disintegration of the old government in his homeland. And then he kept working.

From the President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa:
A man of extraordinary intellect, integrity and invincibility against the forces of apartheid, he was also tender and vulnerable in his compassion for those who had suffered oppression, injustice and violence under apartheid, and oppressed and downtrodden people around the worldIf you subscribe to the NYT, this is worth a read. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/26/world/africa/tutu-death.html
