Goodbye Madiba

This morning the world woke up to the news that the father of a democratic South Africa, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has passed away.  I don't want to write a whole long post about him because every newspaper, magazine and news website there is will have his whole life story.  I just want to say that on this day we shouldn't just mourn this great man, but also celebrate his life and what he did for peace in South Africa.  May his memory life forever.

The picture was taken at the Donkin Reserve where the figure of Madiba is one of the focus points of Route 67, a route dedicated to the life and 67 years that Nelson Mandela spent in the public eye.  RIP Madiba.
