Even though we all knew it was coming, it still made me very sad. What an incredible man.

I time to reflect on his life and think of his family.
A great statesmen. I am not sure we will see his like again anytime soon.

Re: Nelson Mandela has died

An end of an era, but a 95 year old man dying makes me think of accomplishment rather than deep sadness (like with the other celebrities who died suddenly, many decades younger than Mandela this year - Iain Banks, James Gandolfini, and Paul Walker, etc).

Re: Nelson Mandela has died

I'm sorry, but the man was a terrorist who, in his time as leader of the MK, orchestrated the bombing of civilian targets and executions without trial. Yes it was right for the ANC to fight Apartheid, but when you kill civilians you lose all legitimacy.
