An honorable rest

An asylum run by the insane is like a country run by politicians. An example is the long, tragic, historical episode of the Soviet Gulag. The late Alexander Solzhenitsyn put on paper the "many-throated groan, the dying whisper of millions," from the Soviet Gulag run by insane Communists. The writer’s words count. Also, the writer’s life was devoted to speaking out against the irrational sins of evil politicians and dictators. Now that Solzhenitsyn’s gone, his country that managed to ‘take him back,’ in 1994, rendered its courageous and dissident Caesar the homage of a hero’s funeral. I trust that God will render to Alexander, his faithful servant, a well-deserved and honorable rest.
