David Moisi was one of the South African political prisoners sentenced to life (after being sentenced to death and serving two years on death row). I had been very close to his parents and even his uncle. In fact, I actually missed my international flight home in 1990 because of a series of very long goodbyes between me and his parents! I had not been in touch with David for 17 years, but in 2010 I mailed a letter to the only address I had for his family in Sebokeng, South Africa; that that address was 20 years old. How crazy was that?!!! His parents had long passed, but incredibly, his sister still lived in the family home. She forwarded the letter to David and he sent me an e-mail message.
