Power of the pen

Alas, a Blog remarks on something remarkable:

    For years, many concerned about human rights and disability rights have been trying to get countries like The Czech Republic (along with Slovakia, Slovenia, and Hungary) to stop the use of 'caged beds,' often used to control those with mental illness and/or disabilities.

And now they've changed their minds about those beds. But why? Did someone threaten to bomb them? Sanctions? No, it was...

    A letter. Not just any letter, but a letter from a very influential person, calling for the elimination of these beds. So, who could this incredibly powerful and influential person be? Kofi Anan? Nelson Mandela? Madeline Albright?

Who?? Go find out.
