Goodbye to a Revolutionary

Rest in Peace, Rest in Power, Yasser Arafat, guerrilla fighter, "father of a nation" that many do not even recognize as a nation, and leftist revolutionary.

My heart and eyes are heavy with sadness. A generation of radicals is (and has been) passing over into the eternal, and while I mourn their deaths, I wonder: is our generation truly ready to lead? Does it matter? With the deaths of our role-models and forebears occuring more frequently these days, can we step up to the plate and carry on their legacies? Will we do justice to their memory?

In Struggle,
