I saw the film, "Pride", and was so moved I wrote a poem: A PRAYER FOR MARK ASHTON Blessed be your courage. Holy was your struggle. In so short a life, to move mountains. In battles seen as lost, to move the world. May you rest. May you have good reward. Let us your life remember. Let us believe, brightly burn, do as much. John R.
