Wow. I can't believe this. Sure, his health was extremely delicate over the past few years, but I wasn't expecting his passing, for at least a little while more. What an amazing, inspiring figure, whose spirit will live on forever. Rest in peace Madiba.

At the very least his passing was peaceful.

Amazing. Few people alive on this planet will ever receive the outpouring in death that Mandela is about to.

He will certainly be missed, but hearing he's gone brings a sad smile to my face, just thinking of all he did in the long life that he had. Rest in peace.

Our unfortunate PM already expressing sympathies, yet wouldn't have hesitated to call him a terrorist in the past. Same goes for David fucking Cameron.

RIP Nelson Mandela

what an extroidinary, powerful life he ended up living

i literally had walked into my sib's house to pick stuff up a bit past 5PM here, flipped on the tv to watch a political show....her tv is set to a local news station and there was "breaking news"


i switched and i figured the political show was going to it too

the songs >Sun City, Freedom (peter Gabriel), Silver & Gold and the (ANC?) African freedom anthem all wafting through my head as the tv shows photos, videos of his life and

sure he was very ill but i thought he'd rallied one more time for a while longer

had the amazing experience of seeing him when he visited NYC going to the UN wow!

omg!! the person on TV just reminded me.....

i went down to the UN on one of the days when all So Africans here in the NYC tri-state area were then able to vote ... their were tents, long lines, it was a beautiful warming Spring day

And I couldn't stop smiling ....my cheeks hurt!

i made drawings of it (b/c didn't have film)!

there is much left to do.... but oh how he helped usher in such great change!
