Thank you


I wonder if ever a man, walking this Globe, will be mourned and missed with such uniformity.

As I write this, I’m struck by the emotion of so many people reflecting on the death of Nelson Mandela. Considering that few ever met him, or knew him, we still feel an overwhelming sense of loss.

Thank you…

                                for saving my country

                                for not being bitter

                                for giving hope to white and black alike

                                for inspiring me to be better

                                for making me proud to be South African

Thank you…
