I guess the longer one lives, the more one has to come to terms with death. I'm seeing many good people & heroes pass...

Yay. "First black president". Let's all reduce his life's work to that.

Racists.

He achieved more sitting on his arse in prison than almost anyone else did whilst being free. That's pretty impressive. And I do mean that with respect.

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory, when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
