rest in peace.
How will this affect the peace of South Africa?
Rest in heaven.....
Sure there are challenges there still but I think it's a fairly stable country at this point. And Mandela hasn't been active in politics for a while, which is understandable - he was 95 when he died!
He and Desmond Tutu were the right men in the right place at the right time, to guide South Africa through a transition with minimal trauma. In most other countries there would have been tremendous violence in retribution for past injustices.
RIP, what an inspiring life!
Rest in peace!
God bless him
Looking for a quick quote, to summarize his life, I found a nice tribute video:
I wonder how many people would have died, had South Africa followed in our footsteps, and gone the civil war route.
According to Wiki, 2% of America's population died during our war. South Africa has roughly 50,000,000 inhabitants. That correlates to 1,000,000 people, dead.
I wonder how many people died at the hands of the Umkhonto we Sizwe.
Godspeed Nelson, and thank you.
ps. OMG! He was Royalty!
King Nelson. I like that.
