Thanks to Reuters we have a photograph of two world 'leaders'.
On a score of one to ten how would you rate them for: intelligence, vision, leadership, wisdom, courage, peacefulness, humanity, sensitivity and depth of character? Will the world be poorer for their passing?
How many world leaders can you think of that are that much better than these two?
Why is it that, all too often, the dregs of humanity rise to positions of great power and influence rather than people like Gandhi or Martin Luther King?
Do we deserve the leaders we get?
P.S. This post is offered on a trial basis. The ice is still thin!
