Just a man …

The death of Nelson Mandela was not unexpected but somehow still feels unreal.

He was truly a man of humanity, a visionary and a man who had a great capacity for forgiveness.

He acted not out of self importance, but out of a deep rooted belief in the right of all people.

He was a fair man, an honest man and won respect not by demand, not by his words, but by his actions and his unfailing belief.

He was loved and hated for his beliefs.   He was summed up as a Protester, a Prisoner and a Peacemaker.   

He was all of those things.   He was just a man who believed in Truth and Freedom.

A great man.   Rest in peace.
