Towards the end of Achebe's legendary novel, "Things Fall Apart," Obierika looks at the dangling body of his friend Okonkwo and angrily shouts "That man was one of the greatest men in Umuofia, you drove him to kill himself; and now he will be buried like a dog." I am glad that today on the death of Achebe I can scream, "That man was one of the brilliant students of his time; you drove him to tell stories and now he will live for ever." Adieu, Master craftsman; you made the world a better place. It was a privilege to meet and interview you.

To the Family of Professor Achebe, I am very sorry for your lost. He was truly a man ahead of his time. But so far His overall goal to educated people of different cultures has not happen as yet. It will take a government that will not only change the thinking but also the heart of people earth wide. Such a government does exist and it is found in Isaiah 2:2-4. Here it is describe as a strong mountain. Reading this will give you hope of better times ahead so take care.

Professor Achebe's book "Things Fall Apart" had a very profound affect on me. We are so fortunate that he blessed this earth with his writings. He has educated and informed many. My regards to his family in their time of sorrow.
