Pope John Paul II has died
It's 12:02 PM here in California, they have just announced the Pope's death on CNN. He passed about a half an hour ago. I am home alone listening to Sublime's “Pawn Shop” and doing my homework. I will remember this moment the rest of my life. The Pope was a good man, no, the Pope was a great man. He helped change the face of our planet and was perhaps one of the most influential public figures of the late 20th Century. I am saddened because I have the distinct feeling that a great force for good has died. He will be missed, rest in peace Pope John Paul II.
