Rather a waste of good Joan

John the gardener says, "Free Tibet!"

To the end, she remained sure of her faith and her 'voices', and confident that her suffering would be rewarded after death. Let's hope so; she was certainly misused by the representatives of earthly power. However strong one's faith in the supernatural may be, it's hard to overcome the notion that the world would have been richer with Joan in it for a few more years, and that burning such a remarkable young woman was rather a tragic waste.

Actuall, this article moved me. I'm seldom moved by tales of martyrs as many of them are simply frauds to make some old heathen god look like a christian saint, but the story of Joan d'Arc... well, it moved me.

In the future, lets try not to kill such splendid people.
