Another lion soon to be for the ages
“At the time of this writing, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, lies in a Pretoria, South Africa, hospital. The 94-year-old father of the new South Africa — where he served as president from 1994 to 1999, after serving 27 years in prison for fighting apartheid — is gravely ill. Mandela’s name can be placed alongside Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. All changed their countries and the world for the better. Mandela is the only one who will not die by an assassin’s hand. Interestingly enough, Gandhi was the only one of the three not to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, though nominated five times, a decision the Nobel committee has admitted to regretting.”
