On Saturday, 18 December 2011 two leaders died. North Korea’s Kim Jong Il, a totalitarian brutal dictator who brutally oppressed his people died of an apparent heart attack. Václav Havel, dissident, activist, last president of Czechoslovakia and the first president of the Czech Republic died from respiratory problems. His life’s work was to free and empower people.
While the free world is concerned about the transition of power in North Korea, they celebrate the life and work of Havel.
