Mandela 1918 -2013


Tributes to the greatest man in our life time have started to arrive at the foot of his statue in Parliament Square.  Front page news around the world.  Leaders from all nations have praised him.

If only all the religious and political leaders of the world could exercise just half of Nelson Mandela's tolerance and sense of justice

He's a man that was respected by many. I agree with you about the world leaders. There is too much division in the world.

Asking for too much I suspect. Great loss.

That is so true what you say but I'm afraid they are all Hypocrites especally ours

A nice tribute to an iconic man.

The world has lost a great human. He achieved so much in his long life. His loss will be felt for a long time to come.

The world needs a leader like him in the Middle East.

And in the U.S. Congress.

Lovely tribute - there will not be another like him for a long time, if ever. What a loss for the world. I wonder what the scene at the Southbank bust is like, probably as moving.

This is sure to be a gathering place for people to pay their respects now. Good post for today.

Beautiful tribute Mo. I minute I heard the news I thought about seeing this statue when you and I were driving our little Mini around London. I was wishing I had gotten a photo of it and wondering if people would bring flowers. I think I would have if I had been there.

An extraordinary man. It wasn't unexpected, but still a profound loss. I admired him greatly.

I'm thinking of ways to pay tribute at my page... we don't have a statue of him here, but he was designated an honourary citizen.

Beautiful words and I feel like you, Mo.
Thank you for showing London with flowers by Mandela!

The world is poorer without him!

Hugs, from Denmark,
