Re: Nelson Mandela dead at 95

Rolihlahla's life story is pretty interesting and much of it is impressive and inspiring. The likelihood of someone brought into this word by two illiterate parents going to college and become a lawyer are pretty slim. Overcoming 27 years in prison and that apartheid thingie and going on to become president of the country is quite a story.

Mr. Mandela made an indelible mark on this world. What a resume huh? Rest In Peace, you showed the world how a just man responds to almost limitless disrespect; with dignity.

He was the chiefs son and a member of the royal family of the cape tribe.
Where did you hear that his parents were illiterate?

Part of me wants to say RIP (he went through a lot and 95 is a nice old age), but the other part of me wants to say good riddance.

That's messed up bro. Nelson Mandela was basically the George Washington of South Africa. He had his sins like any man, but they were far FAR outweighed by the good he did.

I'm not sad when such great people pass on and make a difference - it's emotional yes, but it is more a time of celebration that we were all the better for having them here in the first place.

Maybe not, but you're also not an inspiration to millions of people, a great leader, or really anyone of note or merit.

Maybe you should give some communism a try?
