There's been a lot of death in the news these last few days, between Syria and several celebrities. As we close the year, we might recall some things said by some people we lost that will stay with us for a long time.
Prince, who died at 57 after making music to dazzle generations, said, "It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it."
Elie Weisel, who survived Auschwitz to reveal the Holocaust for so many, died at 87. I thought of his words when Aleppo fell this month to the Syrian regime.
