Nelson Mandela: 1918-2013

“The most fervent desire of every human being is that when his last day comes, those who remain behind will say: 'Here lies a person who has done his or her duty to country and to people.' I am sure many of you have put confidence in that dream. And that is what makes us hopeful in spite of all the problems that face us.” -Nelson Mandela’s speech in acceptance of the Four Freedoms Medal, 2002
