I love the tribute, Sumana. Poignant.
Some people are unspeakably brave – and it is good to be reminded of the light they bestowed
Beautifully poignant, Sumana 🙂

Being a child then teen surviving those wars years is almost incomprehensible to us today. Yet we learn nothing and still play those games forgetting the lessons we’ve been taught. This is a wonderful tribute to him.
Somehow carrying on when one after the other the survivors and witnesses are leaving we have to carry their hope of change and never more forward.
Lovely to come by for a reread… a deep and moving tribute, and so important that we remember what humanity is capable of
What a beautiful tribute to a man whose memory and his works will live on forever!
Thank you, thank you. For a poem that lifts his light as he lifted it. I think that last verb (was) might easily be “is.” Exquisite. I love how you put ‘night’ in there. His words are alive in me too.
yes, Susan it is IS. I corrected it. Thank you 🙂
Poignant, but inspiring by the dedication as well. Thank you.
Thank you for this marvelous tribute to Elie Wiesel. I was shocked and saddened to learn of his death. He lives on in the words he left behind.
The light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.

To be born as a bright spark from the cold dark… This is a wonderful tribute, Sumana. ☼

Beautiful! “Is not put out at the touch of death.”
This is a wonderful tribute to a greatly influential man. We need to remember the giants of the 20 Century, and allow them to inspire us in our times of dire need.
Searing the tragedy of the holocaust on the world’s conscience.
Beautiful and haunting. That light, may it always shine,
Lovely tribute to an incredible man. His book, Night, should be (in my opinion) required reading for everyone. It is so life-changing and eye-opening!
Bonsoir Elie ❤
This is a beautifully crafted elegy – the close, especially is so emotive and moving.
Beautiful tribute to a real life hero.

Humour is the weapon of unarmed people…..Elie Wiesel.
Lovely tribute Sumana. So nice of you to bring attention to this exceptional man.

Eloquent … powerful … impactful. A stunning tribute.
This is my second time reading this piece. I love that it shines as bright (or brighter) as the first time.
