A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

I never met  Nelson Mandela so I don’t really feel like I have the right to comment on his passing…and yet here I am. To call Mandela “great” is to understate the obvious; Mandela was a visionary, a champion for social justice, and a shining exemplary of what it truly means to forgive. The world lost a hero today–one that can never be replaced. Let us never forget his legacy and how he used the power of reconciliation to transform a racially torn nation into a united nation of greatness.

Afskeid, Madiba. You will be missed.
