Nelson Mandela is an inspiration to all who fight for justice, peace, fairness and equality.
He was locked up for his part in the struggle against an evil system, and could have allowed anger to consume him. He chose instead, to forgive his captors.
He could have used his position as one of the leading lights in the ANC, to call for an all out war against the government, but not Mandela, he chose a different path.
Mandela chose reconciliation rather than revenge. He chose democracy rather than seizing power.
He has left our world now, but he has left a better world behind, than the one into which he was born.
|"To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that |
respects and enhances the freedom of others." Nelson Mandela
