Sad news,I did kind of figure it was coming when I heard the news on BBC Five Live of a gathering of State Vehicles at Nelson Mandela’s residence.
Nelson Mandela died today at home aged 95 in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is someone we can all look to and say he was a great man, he united a nation were he had every excuse to tear apart. He believed in peace, in unity, in his nation and its people.
There are so many who could learn from his example and if they did this world would be a much better place. The BBC News services has more details on his passing and life.
