Nelson Mandela

Today’s day will forever remain engraved in humanity’s collective memory as the day Nelson Mandela passed away.

His vision, humble humanity and above all compassion for the sufferings of the fellow human beings have inspired millions around the world and his legacy will remain.

He was my hero since the time I become aware of the world around me.

His brave and  selfless struggle for human dignity, justice, equality and freedom inspired me time and time again. 

He was a light-carrier; the light he carried in him illuminated humanity.

  1. It is truly amazing how he alone, through adversity that most can only imagine, has had such an enduring influence on peoples of the world.


  2. It goes without saying that in today’s world the real heroes have to be jailed and persecuted before a future generation recognizes their contribution. My guess is that in ten years Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning will be recognized as heroes alongside Nelson Mandela.
