"Why did we take so long?"

Father Clyde Glandon sent me this:

Negotiations happen not between friends, negotiations happen between enemies. And a surprising thing does seem to take place, at least it did in South Africa, enemies began to find that they can actually become friends, or at least collaborators for the common good. They come together and then actually they ask themselves, “Why did we take so long to get to this point? Why did so many people have to die?”

-- Desmond Tutu

Why, indeed?
