    A life very well lived in the service of others. A truly great man.

    He was an Icon of the ages. RIP, he will be long remembered as one of the worlds greatest leaders and strivers for justice. Him and Gandhi.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    "He totally should have left Apartheid alone..." Leave it to the righty wackos to denigrate a good man.

    Been to his old prison cell and got very emotional when I saw how small it was, you could stretch out both your arms and touch the walls. Amazing that he came out and forgave the way he did.
