    A great man has passed, God rest his soul. Amazing he made it thus far, being imprisoned and mistreated so many years. He was willing to be jailed for what he believed in.

    Peace & Freedom were his goals, he sought nothing for himself but everything for his people, he demonstrated that character, determination and persistence can triumph in the world today. A real leader in a time when the term is tossed around much to lightly. His impact on the planet at large has been incredible.

    "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." - Nelson Mandela

    When asked about Mandela last week, Dick Cheney commented, "I stand by my assertion that he should not have been released from prison. He was a terrorist." Wish more terrorists were like Nelson Mandela.

    I agree!! He was a man of peace, a champion of is people, a man who suffered for what he believed in, one for the ages.
