Nelson Mandela dead: World mourns loss of ‘Madiba’

(from chicagotribune.com)

“Ordinary South Africans were in shock. “It feels like it’s my father who has died. He was such a good man, who had good values the nation could look up to. He was a role model unlike our leaders of today,” said Annah Khokhozela, 37, a nanny, speaking in Johannesburg.”

An historical figure for our century, took over the Gandhi concepts and made South Africa a better place, he did not unfortunately live long enough to see the Palestinian issue solved, but the people of good will, may take this special circumstance as an incentive to progress towards peace as he dreamed of, against all odds and prejudice.
