Many of the other heroes I learned of were before my time and I could only read and learn about them while growing up.
Madiba stood up in the face of adversity, did what he felt he had to do, served his time, became President of his country, stepped down after the first term for quiet retirement, then passed away peacefully.
He never held a grudge nor showed animosity to those who hurt him; instead he befriended and worked alongside them.
Who does that?
I’ll tell you who...
Thank you Madiba. Thank you for your contribution and what a great contribution you made to mankind.
