Yesterday’s man is dead and gone . . .

 . . . and all there is to remember him by is waste and pain.

The years we have in life are few, but he chose to spend his own precious years on the ruining of other lives. Many many finer died, and many many finer people prevail in life as survivors of his crimes. The only pity of his death is a pity that he was ever born.

On the BBC World Service, Witness interviews survivors of the Al Qaeda 1998 Embassy Bombings in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
