July 18, 1918 – December 5th 2013

Rest in Peace.

The father of a nation. The holder of the flame of hope and democracy. One of the truely great leaders of the free world.

De houder van die Vlam van De Hoop en die Demokrasie. Een van die groot regtig leiders van die vrye wêreld.

Let freedom reign.

* From time to time, in every nation in the world, a figure emerges from the masses -pulled up by his own bootstraps- and catches the imagination and affection of the people. Mostly they are tough guys and flouters of authority, but often they have courage and become an icon of a nation. 

Nelson Mandela was such a person.
