    It means the RIP thread was merged with the one we were in so we can't say anything negative about the man now.

He and the countless others who worked with him helped to save the soul of a nation and replace with equality where there once had been discrimination, helped to replace with love where there once had been hate. He is an inspiration to people not just in South Africa, but to those who fight for justice and freedom today and who will continue the fight tomorrow. While he may be gone, he still lives on in the hearts of those who wish for a peaceful and just world, where we can learn to live together, even with our differences, but still respect and understand one another.

    Rest In Peace Mandela, you have earned it.
    What a beautiful eulogy!

    Greetings, Mr. Invisible

    Amazing that he came out and forgave the way he did.

    Why would you want to??
    He just died..
    I remember when Kennedy, Jobs, and Breitbart died when I was on Politico..
    It hurt to see what people said, especially at Breitbart's family, about a year ago..
    We are better than this..
    It seems to have taken 50 years for noone to speak poorly of JFK, all leans .

    I think you have Mussolini confused with the Nazi's. Come to think of it, Mussolini used to be a communist.

    But I digress.

    Rest in peace Comrade Mandela. The endgame being that you won in South Africa and Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) but lost the bigger war, the Cold War.
    With the end of the Cold War, Mandela was released from prison in 1990.

    It's a shame that South Africa isn't living in peace today.

    What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
    Albert Pike

    Rest in peace and Well done Mandela, you have left the world a better place. Immortality is in our deeds and beliefs, and you sir have become immortal.
    War is not a tool to satisfy your emotional outbursts.

    I don't believe that any lack of peace in South Africa can be blamed on Nelson Mandela.

    Rip Mandela and I just don't think it is a big deal at all that your branch of the ANC known as the MK, carried out numerous bombing which killed and maimed hundreds of people. You Gandhi and MLK are were just soooo much alike. RIP brave comrade.
