Nelson Mandela 1918-2013
« on: December 05, 2013, 06:11:44 pm »
An icon has passed at the age of 95.  I don't know what to say, really.  I'm old enough to remember when he was initially released from prison in South Africa, and I'm terribly sad at his passing.

Peace be unto his family and friends and the many many people whose lives he touched.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

He was a remarkable man.

With a remarkable legacy.

Nelson Mandela left South Africa and the world a better place they were when he was born. A man with a great heart and soul, and we are poorer for his passing.

"It always seems impossible until it is done."
                                                        Nelson Mandela

May your rest be kind and benevolent, President Mandela. No one deserves that more than you.
