It’s a joy looking at the face of a man you know to be simple and forthright–bittersweet when he no longer can be so. The world has a lot to thank Alexander Solzhenitsyn for, beyond the strings of words he so eloquently constructed. A man with such a love for his country that he could not let the evil lurk in the shadows, no more than he could stay away once the evils had perished in the light of day amongst the crumbling concrete walls that, for too long, entrapped free men who thought themselves slaves.
