May he see his God face to face:

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the Nobel Prize-winning author whose books chronicled the horrors of the Soviet gulag system, has died of heart failure, his son said Monday. He was 89.

The world is a better place for the light he courageously shined on the horror house of the Soviet Union. Would that all men were as brave as Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn, and that the harsh lessons he taught were better heeded by the men attempting to build the brave new worlds of tomorrow.
