In memoriam Vaclav Havel, 1936 - 2011

I speak in celebration of all those who freely enter danger and deprivation to fight for freedom, all those who challenge lies and oppression, all those who refuse to allow their thoughts, their words and their loves to be controlled by abused power, who though they may give ground, never give way.

I speak for those who love freedom and do not confuse it with the oppression of poor by rich or the reduction of all life to money.

I speak for those who know true freedom cannot be won by denying it to others.

Vaclav Havel was a great man and a great example.
