chasing the flame sergio vieira de mello and the fight to save the world

Sergio Vieira de Mello from Brazil was the embodiment of what the United Nations could and should be. Sergio was the UN Secretary General's "ultimate go-to guy", a nation builder in the world's hottest spots like East Timor, Cambodia, Kosovo. Everyone who met him - from George W. Bush to Slobodan Milosevic – were amazed by his intelligence, physical bearing, charisma and integrity. It was a total shock for the world public when he and 14 other UN staff were killed on August 19th 2003 by an al-Qeada suicide bomber at the ‘Canal Hotel’ in Baghdad, an event that has become known as the UN's "9/11". This biography is extremely thrilling and considered to be a masterpiece of journalistic writing. Excellent, well-written book that is a definite must read.

From the Book :"In the old age of his intellect (which atthis point seemed to taste a little of decrepitude), Strauss declared [1] that the doctrine ofimmortality has recently lost the assistanceof a passable argument, inasmuch as it hasbeen discovered that the stars are inhabited;for where, he asks, could room now be foundfor such a multitude of souls? Again, in viewof the current estimates of prospective population for this earth, some people have begun toentertain alarm for the probable condition ofEngland (if not Great Britain) when she gets(say) seventy millions that are allotted to heragainst six or eight hundred millions for theUnited States. We have heard in some systems of the pressure of population upon food;but the idea of any pressure from any quarter upon space is hardly yet familiar. Still, Isuppose that many a reader must have beenstruck with the naive simplicity of the hyperbole of St. John, [2] perhaps a solitary unit of itskind in the New Testament: "the which ifthey should be written every one, I supposethat even the world itself could not containthe books that should be written.""
