Nelson: 95
Death: 1

That man managed to do a lot of things indeed.

We can now only hope that we soon don’t also lose the person most similar to him: Kofi Annan.

While I may not have agreed on some of his views on politics and the United States, it does no good to speak ill of the dead. His humanitarian efforts and life story are truly inspiring.

R.I.P.

“He no longer belongs to us – he belongs to the ages.”
President Obama’s sentiments were spoken almost 150 years ago by US Secretary of War Edwin Stanton about the death of another civil rights visionary – President Abraham Lincoln.
Rest in peace, Mr. Mandela.

There seems to be political support and backlash against and for Mandela, but the man is dead and his leadership has been beneficial for the country of South Africa, and I will respect that.
