Nelson Mandela …

Nelson Mandela is dead.

Born July 18, 1918, died December 5, 2013.

For most of his life he was a Marxist with no objection to violence as a means to an end.

But when the time came he recognised the greater value of forgiveness and reconciliation.

And in doing so, made himself the greater man.
