But the morning had begun sadly. Switching on the telly, Nelson Mandela. I remember marching in the streets of London and chanting, Free, free Nelson Mandela!' And dancing to a song of the same name (was that The Special AKA?). And that profoundly moving moment when Madiba was at last freed, and Apartheid belonged to the past. For many of us he was a role model. He showed that it IS possible to make a better world, through our actions and commitments.
And so, there you go. I can say it. Madiba, we hail you and may peace be with you. Sliem ghalik.
