The Rev. Dr. William Sloane Coffin, Jr.
The United States of America lost one of its greatest citizens this week. The Rev. Dr. William Sloane Coffin, Jr. died on April 12th. He was not only a great American, but a great Christian and a great New Yorker. I will not recap his career; the obituary in The New York Times did that. I just want to honor his decades of commitment to making America and the world a better place.
