I have just learned that my friend and hero, Chuck Colson, has died. He was surrounded by his family as he went home to be with Jesus at 3:12 p.m. this afternoon. For the World magazine obituary, click here. And for a link to the speech he was giving just three weeks ago yesterday click here. It was his last public appearance. It was during this speech that Chuck fell ill and was soon thereafter taken to the hospital. Rest in peace, dear friend.
