Nelson Mandela demonstrated an  unwavery committment to revolutionary struggle. He will be greatly missed by many people around the world. ( July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013). May Mandela be greeted with boisterous celebration by the ancestors. 

“I had no epiphany, no singular revelation, no moment of truth, but a steady accumulation of a thousand slights, a thousand indignities and a thousand unremembered moments produced in me an anger, a rebelliousness, a desire to fight the system that imprisoned my people. There was no particular day on which I said, Henceforth I will devote myself to the liberation of my people; instead, I simply found myself doing so, and could not do otherwise.”
