Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, 1918-2013

5 12 2013

One of the best human beings of the 20th century.

He was not a saint, not a martyr.

He simply demanded to be treated as a human being, and knew how to be human.

He will be missed.

he will be missed along with my past youthful faith in movements and figures like his, we don’t talk enough about mourning in life and politics
