An inspiration. RIP.

I knew this was coming when I heard all those stories about his ill health earlier this year. I was worried he was going to be suffering. But now, he's at peace, and the world in general and South Africa in particular is all the more poorer for his passing.

R.I.P, Nelson Mandela :( :pray: . Ave atque vale. So passes one of the most iconic people of the 20th century.
