and... World Peace!
Nelson Mandela has died.
CNN is broadcasting the announcement by President Zuma of South Africa right now.
RIP Mr. Mandela
I just saw something online and came here to report it. Thanks for starting this thread, Toni. Recently, one could see that he was in his final days, but that doesn't make the actual end any less wrenching. I went through this with my mom; it was clear that there was not much left of her, but when she closed her eyes at that last moment, it was still the complete loss. Imagine how much more intense that bereavement is for an entire people who have never known life without this man.

A great man has passed.
My sympathies to the people of South Africa.
Rest in peace Mr. Mandela. You set an example for the world.
Mr. Mandela is a legend. RIP.
