RIP Madiba, Nelson Mandela

It is quite a somber day in South Africa.  

Nelson Mandela past away last night. 

Not only is the weather overcast and gloomy, but the mood in the country is melancholy.  

Madiba will be remembered as a symbol for wisdom, for the ability to change, and the power of reconciliation.
In Zuma's address to the nation today
“Although we knew this day was going to come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss. His tireless struggle for freedom earned him the respect of the world. His humility, passion and humanity earned him their love.”

Rest In Peach, Madiba.

Rest in peace Mabida, your president is so right when he said that even though it was coming it's still so hard to take, incredible that he lived to 95 though, talk about an icon.

it's certainly amazing how he emerged from all of that, seemingly not bitter and uncorrupted by power
