A Sad loss to The World after what that Man had endured in The Former part of his Life which has made the World a Better place for Millions of People as he relayed his message all around The World.
When you walk into A Good Mate's Home The First Thing you notice is a Photo of him Shaking Hands With The Great Man as he met Nelson Mandela when he went to a few Mining Conventions in South Africa.
To end may I say Nelson Mandela RIP.
Brian.

Sad news, he was a truly great leader of his people and endured a lot during his lifetime.

This man's life and death relates to not only those who enjoy freedom, but also to all who want that freedom and the personal rights that come with it.

Never really could understand prejudice. A mans soul is in his heart and feels for the people he knows. Compassion is a good thing. Some folks get dealt some bad cards. Mandela did something for the people that were getting stepped on. Good for him. mhrip

Default Re: Nelson Mandela

I had read this earlier today and although his recent health issues indicated he would be departing this world it still seems a schock. 'He' made a difference in the lives of Millions of people, Strength - resolve - and dignity will be his epitaph in my memories of him and a land I've never known.


I could well have moved this to the Lodge Den threads but thought it more fitting to give this great man his time on General Discussions. Had he been born free he may have chosen fly fishing as his passion but he had no such luxury.

Truly a big loss to the world. He was a natural born leader and had to endure and overcome many hardships. True meaning of perserverance.

Does that mean this thread is open for differing opinions or is it only for those that wish to pile undeserved praises at his very dirty feet?

There are often forum items that don't relate directly to fly fishing, but to the world we live in.
A great man passed away today. He suffered much of his 95 years. For his beliefs, he spent 27 years in prison, and yet rose to the office of president. This rebel believed that "all men are created equal ". Sound familiar ?
He spent a long and dedicated life fighting for that belief.
This man holds my respect, and always will, and if someone here chooses to mention the passing of a great world leader, I say thank you for the gesture.
