Of course I am saddened by the passing of Nelson Mandela. In my opinion he was one of the wisest leaders on this planet for a very long time. I am heartened to see the global reaction and broad acknowledgement of this sentiment. If only more of the national leaders, heads of state and those in parliaments, congresses, and judiciaries were even just one tenth as wise as Mandela, the world would be a very different place, a much better place than it is.
In memory of Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
