    Manlius comes from a strong line of independent men that didn't work for others but paved their way as true pioneers despite the prejudice and injustice because of the color of their skin. It was not a deterrent yet it was an unnecessary challenge. I know I will see him again, here on earth and he will be free of all of these burdens. I knew you as a teenager. Sleep well, my friend. When you awake the earth will be renew. No more suffering and pain. I'll see you, soon!
