Will we be up to the challenge?

Courage has a name. It is called Navalny. The courage shown by this man, this courage to deliberately sacrifice his life to set an example for a muzzled country, the courage to brave death, laughing, smilingand showing irony in the face of his executioners to the very end, the courage to open up new roads for History with his bare hands defying a tyrant who is a war monger, a liar and a murderer, this courage not only commands admiration.
