Reflection on Haile Selassie

It is refreshing to find a very sympathetic reflection on Haile Selassie from Gambia’s Daily Observer.Nice to see the admiration the writer has for our Emperor and his respect for the values he stood for.Here is the introduction paragraph.

   “The facts of his life are well known. Haile Selassie’s influence on the world is his   most enduring legacy. Born Tafari Makonnen in 1891, Haile Selassie came to be identified inextricably with Ethiopia. Only rarely in the modern world does the story of a man become so closely linked to the story of a nation. It is said that great events beget great men, but they beget failures as well, and the boundary between the two is often defined by singular acts of courage. These the Ethiopian Emperor did not lack.”
