In Memory of Nelson Mandela

Dave reflects on Nelson Mandela:

“Nelson Mandela emancipated a people and did so in such a way that his actions also emancipated their oppressors. He did not do it alone but it could not have happened without him. He showed no hatred or vengeance toward those who had murdered, tortured and terrorized his nation for generations. He saved a country and set an example for the rest of us which, if we choose to follow, will lead us to a better world.”
