wonder if that “one man dies, the whole world cries; children die everyday, no one cares” meme is going to surface
i briefly learned about mandela in my college course on theology and nonviolence. i was impressed most by his evolution from militant freedom fighter to peaceful protester. this indicates to me the muddiness of practicing morals, as well as the complexion of this ideological man.
the death of any individual warrants mourning and remembrance. peace to mandela. god bless him for his sacrifice for south africans and others in this world. and may we remember him correctly.
