I woke up this morning and a dictator is dead. I put my hair in a bun and brushed my teeth. History happens so quietly.

A young theologian once told me the greater you are, the more violent your death. I was only 19 at the time and I felt afraid. Is that really true? I asked her. Yes, she said. Just look at history.
