Bob Massie on Foreign Policy
A: Desmond Tutu. I got to meet him several times. He was actually quite joyful--even when threatened with assassination, nothing crushed his spirit. Once I sat down with him in his office--he was the Archbishop of Cape Town. He put his hands on my head and said a long blessing in Xhosa. When he finished, he sat back down and said, `I know you didn't understand what I said but let me assure you it was a beautiful blessing, and besides, it's the language they speak in heaven.'
