Nelson Mandela's memory shall ever shine.

If any of us could ever even slightly glimmer as he did, our lives would be greatly improved, our personalities polished and our hearts opened.  Ever humble, I truly believe he bore all the hallmarks of sainthood; only time will help the world to acknowledge this.


  1. You are so right about Nelson Mandela. Unimaginable that any of us could spend 27 years in a harsh prison and come out not only with the ability to forgive but also with the ability to accomplish an amazing historical feat...ridding South Africa of apartheid.
    Luv, K

  2. Thems was such beautiful words fur such a beautiful man. What an amazin' man dat changed da lives of so many peoples.

    Hey, when I die can you write some purty words fur me?


  3. He was a amazing man.

  4. It's amazing how one man can touch so many people world wide. He will be missed.

  5. Our world has lost a great man but his spirit and deeds will live on.

  6. An extraordinarily inspiring man in both his character and his achievements. May he rest in peace and may his legacy live on in a democratic and peaceful South Africa.
