He was an incredibly good man, and I’m not ready to live in a world without this man in it. He did so much for humanity and will always be remembered for that. Rest in peace Mr. Mandela.

The world lost an amazing leader today. Nelson Mandela was a wonderful example of peace, love and light amid times of trial, oppression and violence. May God bless him and his family.

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” – Nelson Mandela

You did what you were born to do, now it’s time to rest in peace :(…I wish his family and friends strength.

The world is a better place because of your courage, strength, and inspiration. Thank you for your example. May your family be comforted
through our prayers.

Not going to miss him for one minute. Marxism is crapola.

you apparently have no idea who he is

May you rest in peace sweet angel. Your acts of heroism on Earth made you a god among mortals. Your legacy, courage endures.

Mandela, You were the light in the darkness. You are now an angel in heaven. Rest In Peace.

Anybody who can be imprisoned for 27 years only to forgive his captors and invite them to tea upon release has a stronger character than I do. RIP, Nelson Mandela.

R.I.P Nelson Mandela you most certainly left a deep and profound mark on your path for us to use as a beacon of light.

Walker going Fast & Furious, Mandela going Calm and acertive “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”. Nelson Mandela….
“If one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling.” Paul Walker


No, Les, u really dont have idea who Mandela really was. Ure just another brainwashed moron. Communist, murderer, terrorist, thug, genocidal maniac, this is what Mandela really was. Welcome to the real world. Tragic when terrorists are considered “freedom fighters” and gullible idiots do not ever even bother to think. Definitely u havent ever heard about the genocide against the white South African ppl.

On 31 January 1985, the State President of South Africa, Pieter W. Botha, speaking in Parliament, offered Mandela his freedom on condition that he “unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon”. Mandela rejected the offer. The rest is cretin propaganda which will be repeated over and over these days in the Zio-owned media.


Angel? What the hell did u smoke?
