Tutu is retiring

South African priest and human rights activist Desmond Tutu is finally retired.

In the end the perpetrators of injustice or oppression, the ones who strut the stage of the world often seemingly unbeatable – there is no doubt at all that they will bit the dust.” (followed by roaring chuckle) “Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! The texture of our universe is one where there is no question at all but that good and laughter and justice will prevail.

A world without Tutu will be a bit darker, a little more dull. His legacy will be his life and the story of how this tiny pastor with a huge laugh from South Africa became our global guardian – much more than any American army could induce. Thank you Tutu for all these years and for what you did!
