Mandela

In announcing the death of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, South Africa’s President, Jacob Zuma, said that Mandela had ‘departed’.  As though we had been visited, and that visit is now over.

Mandela, a departed presence that for long will linger.  What it is hoped will linger are the beliefs Nelson Mandela’s life embodied, beliefs lived-by through action.
