Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

"Mandela was one of the great leaders and teachers of the twentieth century. He conceived a model for mortal enemies to overcome their hatred and find a way through compassion to rebuild a nation based on truth, justice and the power of forgiveness. His passing should reignite a worldwide effort for peace."

- Paul Simon on Nelson Mandela's passing, December 5, 2013
