I always dreamed of meeting this legend. When I was growing up in my early years I would hear talks of this guy who got out of prison and is soon to be the president of the country. At the time politics was not something I new much about! As I grew up and this gentlemen become president I was to witness one of the greatest men alive. His history and work soon spread like wild fire amonst the people of South Africa and the rest of the world. We are very privilaged today of being able to capture most of his life on tapes and cameras for future generation to see.
He has spend 27 years in prison that is something unheard of especially when you in prison because you belive in something that is your human right.
As citizensSouthAfrica it makes you also wonder and reflect on the past and almost wish you where there with him side by side during the struggle. I always ask myself how can one race be like that over another race. The answer that always comes up is FEAR. Fear of the unknown.
There simply so much to say about him. His autobiography Long work to Freedom from his own words says all you would like to know. I now believe there is a Mandela in all of us!. GOD BLESS US ALL
