R.I.P Nelson Mandela

18th July 1918-5th Dec 2013

Today the world mourns the great Nelson Mandela who has died, aged 95, after what seems like a period of almost constant ill health.

I was only in my very early teens when Nelson Mandela became president of South Africa, but can still remember haw much of an impact we all thought he would have on the world. 

There are so many biographies available of this great man, the last few years of illness have produced what seems like a vast number; one which I am planning on reading in tribute is Conversations with Myself published in 2011. This is a wonderful collection of Mandela's letters and diary entries that provides insight to the thoughts of this great man.

Rest In Peace.
