There are very few names in the history of mankind, that have the ability to unite us in remembrance of such astonishing inner strength, for such wonderful achievements, and for inspiring the human spirit across classes, across borders, and across cultures.
I am humbled to have lived at a time when one of the greatest among them lived.
For those of us who value free, democratic principles, and equality, he is the archetype, the promise, and the inspiration.
His outstanding contribution forever etched in human history, a name forever associated with the cause and struggle for freedom not just for South Africa but for the World, will outlive us all.
A true testament to the strength of the human desire to be free.
“Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement”
– Nelson Mandela.
1918 – 2013.
