Hysterical. I was mooching around the r/atheism sub-forum when I decided to click on r/christianity (to check out t’other side, so to speak). The first thread is “Let’s pray for r/atheism”. Oh, how I laughed!
The perfect epitaph for Nelson Mandela ➛ “Man dies at home at a fine old age surrounded by his loved ones, at the end of a life that provably made the world a better place.”
People of my generation will recall that from the beginning of the 1980s until the end of the Apartheid regime, there was a non-stop picket outside the South African embassy in London.
Many people carried signs saying, “Free Nelson Mandela”. I didn’t think I’d live to see the day that he would be freed, never mind lead his country in a democratically elected Government.
Nelson Mandela was the first person to ever make me aware of social injustice as I became aware of his incarceration in my formative years. Rest in peace, Madiba. Your work is done and your legacy will carry on.
