Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48, a victim of herself.  Each year we receive the news of deaths due to drug and alcohol use with shock and surprise.  Michael Jackson, John Belushi, Lady Diana (the driver was drunk), and others were a real loss to our culture.  Now we have Whitney Houston joining their ranks.

Whitney did a series of concerts in South Africa in 1994 to honor Nelson Mandela.  Here is an excerpt from those concerts.

Nelson Mandela and Pope John Paul IIknew one another.

Mandela and John Paul II knew what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. knew, besides fight or flight, there is a third, better option.
