There are people throughout history who seem to be super-human.  Whether or not they are heaven sent, will remain a mystery.  Mr. Nelson Mandela was one of them.  Mandela served 27 years in prison after a conviction of attempting to overthrow the government and later went on to become the first black South African to be elected President, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, and an international symbol of democracy, peace and the "father" of South Africa.

In the wake of his passing, I will pause to recognize the great man who forever shaped history and also hope that as he passes forward his strength and courage will remain here on Earth --- sprinkled amidst us all.  Rest in peace, great leader.
