The news has arrived. It is true that the world has lost a great hero, Nelson Mandela.
A couple years ago I wrote an extensive tribute and reference article on Nelson Mandela when rumors of his death flooded the web. He lived long past the rumors, but today, the rumors come to an end.
Whether or not you are a citizen of the African continent, your life has likely been touched by Mandela. He stood for courage and faith in a free and independent nation, and gave his life to that cause.
