Death of a Hero

All honor, praise, and glory to Fabrizio Quattrocchi, who died like a man at

the hands of those who wish to destroy his civilization — the civilization

to which his country contributed so tremendously much.

Mao Tse-tung noted that “a man’s death can be as light as a feather, or

heavier than Mount Tai.” For once, the old despot got something right.

There is something especially stirring about the story of an unarmed man,

helpless at the hands of pitiless thugs, who yet refuses to kneel or bow.

May Fabrizio Quattrocchi be remembered in that select company, like the

Private of the Buffs. (Who, if memory

serves, has a walk-on part in one of the Flashman books.)

Just a thought: As a tribute to this brave hero, why not offer honorary

U.S. citizenship to any members of Quattrocchi’s immediate family that care

to take it?
