    Alas, we are all mortal ; Life on earth is like the life of flowers during september , very seasonal, very short, ephemeral. But good work or human virtue is what we can talk about. Greed, money, sex, power, … all do not get us anywhere. We all wanted food, water, dress, but yet we think we need more than than that and abuse each other for things which are worthless and meaningless. We even wage war against each other because we think we are smart.

    Anyway, the man has made history, not only to his country, but to the entire humanity. A lesson we must learn and even adopt as the hightest social, political, moral virtue of humanity. Mandela is the hero of all time, genius of all time. People may admire Albert Eistein, but Mandela surpasses all human virtues on our planet. This is the man who rejected revenge on white South Africans. This is the man who said we will not go back in time and repeat what he has been done. He said,” Let all of us build a new South Africa and move forward, but never look backward.” Alas, history is made by him. Rest in peace Mandela.

A man who endured 27 years of solitary in Roben Island where his people did not have any access because you to sail by boat for 2 hours from Cape Town Water Front. His people were not even allowed to get closer to city let alone to visit him. Imagine 27 years Solitary prison in one tiny room? His life is mysterious and miraculous.

    Rest in peace Mandela.

    Africa lost its great three leaders in less than two years. Meles zenawi of Ethiopia, professor John Atta Mills of Ghana and now Mandela. It is really sad news for Africans in particular and for the whole world in general. May you rest in peace

    Madiba’s life touched humanity quite differently. He thought us that there is hope beyond despair, light after darkness and love and passion after going through too much pain and untold suffering. His was a prototype of soft power—-one that comes from attraction rather than inflicting fear and coercion. Even when his oppressors saw fear and hopelessness after being forced to give in to defeat, he extended an olive branch and told them to join him to shape his nation. He surely goes down an isle off history as a man whose life was well lived and whose humility, love and passion for humanity is uncommon in our generation. Your nation and the entire world owe you too much and your legacy will live and go on forever, RIP Madiba.

    With great shock, sympathy I am writing this comment I was deeply saddened to hear of the greatest man of our time and beyond, Nelson Mandela’s death, I would like express my most sincere sympathy and condolence and I truly hope that his family, Africans and ANC members can gather the strength and courage to endure during this difficult time. Great man has fallen, but the idea lives forever in the minds of generation!
    His greatest virtue was truth, justice, non-violence, forgiveness and love for all people no matter their race.
    “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
    RIP Nelson Mandela
