This is a really moving article. I have always been a fan of C.S. Lewis' writings.

C.S. Lewis lived beyond the narrow scope through which too many view his work. He is one who most closely achieved what he meant by humanity.

"He believed in honesty, personal responsibility, commitment, duty, courtesy, courage, chivalry and all those great qualities that society in its wisdom dispensed with in the 20th century on the grounds that they were somehow outdated, and now needs so desperately to recall and recover."

Very sad & yet very true. Why be nice; that's so old-fashioned.
