Dispatch from Crame No. 23

From the piles of books and other reading materials that friends and supporters have so kindly given me while in detention, I find a wellspring of immortal words and stirring thoughts.

One of them is the following quote from THE MOST REVEREND DESMOND TUTU, Anglican Emeritus of Cape Town:

“This is a moral universe, which means despite all the evidence that seems to be to the contrary, there is no way that evil and injustice and oppression and lies can have the last word…this is what has upheld the morale of our people, to know that in the end good will prevail.

“In a situation where human life seems dirt cheap, with people being killed as easily as one swats a fly, we must proclaim that people matter and matter enormously.”

Quite valid and timely words.
