Farewell Mandela

mandelaI’ve never known such sadness to sweep not only a nation, but the world. To sweep humanity. A man of honour, patience and determination, last night we said goodbye to an icon. A hero. A colossus. I have never felt so patriotic and connected to every South African in my 24 years of life. In times of sadness people become united. Because regardless of colour, religion or culture, human beings recognize pain and our natural inclination is to console those we relate to. Let us keep his legacy alive!
