But he gave so much to this world and if it was only one thing (and I come back to this again and again as a topic) - it is not hope or fighting the good fight. It is resiliency.
The ability to believe that you can and will overcome - that is the mark of person who will never give up. We all want to believe in a better tomorrow and have that hope. But getting there, that's the struggle. To be able to pick yourself up each day and say, today I continue on.
Bless this man and his life.
He said this:
We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
And, in the context of this blog, remember his words:
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
