Murder of Pawel Adamowicz, the mayor of Gdansk

I hoped so badly, it was not going to happen, but it did. The President of Gdansk, Pawel Adamowicz, dies after being stabbed by a madman during the charity event in his native city.

Adamowicz was one of the few Polish politicians, advocating for rights of refugees, LGBT community, disadvantaged… he championed the struggle for gender equity, and women's rights… He was one of the few in Poland's politics to say no to hatred… Rest in Peace, and may your departure inspire all of us, regardless of what we believe in, to be better and kinder people…

Adamowicz's death has shocked and saddened me personally. His unequivocal stand on refugees, his passion for solidarity with the less fortunate citizens of the planet was inspirational, and very rare in Poland and across Central Europe. I will miss you and your wisdom dearly! Thank you for your life!
