It only takes one man

It was not a fight over land, nor power, not even wealth…
One man stood up for dignity, equality and justice…
A lesson for today
Some pages of history never fade away…
The mighty are brought down not by those mightier
but by those more humble than them…
He is Hussain 

(This poem was partly inspired by words I read at
