Stéphane Hessel

Stéphane Hessel, author and diplomat, passed away last night at the age of 95. His name may not be a household name in the U.S., but he was held in high esteem in France.

We had the privilege of hearing him speak last year and I was very impressed by his intelligence and his humanity. He was a great man and will be missed. You can hear him yourself here.
