End Of An Era…

English: Young Nelson Mandela. This photo date...

Nelson Mandela has gone the way of all mortals but his legacy lives on. I just heard the news of his passing and I couldn’t help it as a shudder passed through my body at the news. Many people have been expecting his passing, Mandela was ill but he lived well and achieved so much with his life.

My only hope is for humanity to emulate this iconic man, who fought against apartheid (mind you, he didn’t do it alone)  and won. He fought against prejudice and believed all men to be equal. He fought against the evil in men, against hatred, against racism…

There would be lots of words, but I can only say this… may we all leave a great legacy behind… Mandela is gone, he did his bit and generations yet unborn would learn about it.

It’s the end of an era…

Rest In Peace Nelson Mandela!
