Goodbye Rita Montalcini; a beautiful human with a gifted mind. She broke through so much human ignorance; a women scientist in Italy 1950′s and a Jew during the occupation of Italy by Germany. I can’t help but wonder… Couldn’t the 23 year old med student from Delhi, who was so brutally raped and “tortured” have been our next Rita Montalcini? We’ll never know, because she lost her battle and died yesterday….
In India, there are three rapes A DAY – and ONLY 6 convictions a YEAR; a human tragedy.. No other species on this planet, is so consciously self-destructive..
