Sergio Vieira de Mello, uncommon courage

I am taking a small break from my wonderful time in Paris to pay respect to someone I never knew.

Sergio Vieira de Mello, who passed away under the rubble that was his office, together with many of his colleagues in Baghdad. His last words, according to Skynews, was heard by an American soldier who was attempting the rescue. He said "Don't let them pull the mission out."

I don't know what to say, I am too busy crying.
