The death of Nelson Mandela.

All those that are here and now can say "I shared this planet with this giant of a man".

He was indeed an inspirational figure, a beacon of the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Humanity is so much poorer for his passing.

One of my lecturers at University was Albie Sachs, another calm and serene man, appointed a judge by Mandela when he returned from exile.
