THANK YOU NELSON MANDELA

Last edited Fri Dec 6, 2013, 12:29 AM - Edit history (1)

for your incredible courage. For enduring those years of isolation. For suffering the beatings and torture for the cause you believe in. For showing the world the strength of what is right and just. And most of all, for doing all this with out overt bitterness and with incredible grace. May you rest in peace! Mike C

7. I love him.

It is rare that a human being has such a world wide effect and helps to awaken the masses through his own suffering and quest for freedom - not for himself, but for many, many people.

9. A towering figure

Sad to say, probably the least truly great world leader we'll ever see.
