Whenever I see him or hear from him, I am struck anew by the tragedy of a man’s whole life lived literally in a small cage, without opportunity to work, learn, create, produce – except as he can scrape together books, paper and pens from the generosity of others. In spite of all, he is God’s man there, living as a Christian among men whose religion is often hate, where even other “Christians” revert to the prison status quo outside of weekly chapel. Just to be willing to say in his quiet way, “I am a Christian,” and to follow that up with tolerance, forbearance, patience, and compassion for the bent and lost around him, takes great courage and steadfastness.
