What a sad day. I had heard he was very critical.

So sad, he was such a great man. If you get a chance, the HBO movie “Mandela” (from the 80’s) is a great movie about his early life and the apartheid struggles.

I saw this quote on facebook – very powerful:  “Nelson Mandela was born in a country that viewed him as a second-class citizen. He died Thursday as one of the most respected statesmen in the world.”

My heart hurts. I studied abroad in South Africa and have many friends from there or who currently live there. One of the greatest individuals of our time.

I’m actually crying. I’ve never been like this about the death of a public figure before. RIP Madiba.

What an amazing man, he lived an incredible life for 95 years

(unbelieveable when you think about it… someone who was in prison for almost 30 years)

What a phenominal loss… for South Africa – Africa – The World – Mankind.

But this man will live on thru eternity (and no doubt IN eternity)

He was a true living saint.

I will no doubt watch his State Funeral (and cry like a baby)

It will be a monumental moment in time for all of us that live in this time.

Very sad.

What I find interesting, though, is that my friend based in S. Africa said that tributes were pouring in from all over the world… but S. Africa has been comparatively silent…

He was remarkable, I was sad to hear he’s passed.  But what an amazing and selfless life he led.  RIP, Nelson.
