Desmond Tutu – RIP

Peter's pondering

Desmond Tutu, 7 October 1931 – 26 December 2021, was described as Warm, Exuberant, and Outgoing.

Amongst the things he said are:

  • “Be nice to whites, they need you to rediscover their humanity.”
  • “When the missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible, and they had the land.”
  • “Enemies are always friends waiting to be made.”

He lived
he laughed
he cried

He smiled
he served
he died
