He was a simple yet complex man, blessed with multiple gifts and in spite of misfortune, disappointments, tragedy, and a nation at war with itself, he stood firm in his convictions with resolve, humility and a sense of humor. Think not of the legend because the legend is not as dynamic as this real man, a man who experienced great heartache, sorrow, rejection, ridicule and failure. Yet he stands head and shoulders (historically and in many cases physically) above others in history. The struggle at times over took him and, if he had chosen, could have destroyed him. It was hard. It was unpleasant. At times, it was heartbreaking. It was life, real life. Thankfully, he stayed on course.
