Tenacity and Single Mindedness

Today, Simon Wiesenthal passed away.

Whether or not you agree with what he did, you have to agree that he was a great man that was doing great things. You have to admire his single mindedness, for bringing justice to the world and exposing those that tried to hide behind "oh, that was long ago."

There is a lesson here for PR people, and, well, for anyone. Set out a goal, and achieve it.

While Wiesenthal did not think he would be chasing Nazis for the rest of his life, but just a few years, he built his passion into a Center, which pushed the belief that all people should be treated equally, and to fight racism and anti-Semitism, as well as to try and stop any sort of Holocaust again.

  1. He was a truly great man. I never had the opportunity to meet him, but I did interview Elie Wiesel, who I considered his equivalent from a literary perspective. Both dedicated their lives to making sure we would never forget.

  2. Okay, jealous. I always wanted to meet Wiesel.
