day five: a pause for thought

I turned on the TV for the news when I arrived home tonight to hear the news that Nelson Mandela died today. It's hard to know what to say that won't be said elsewhere so perhaps we can just pause and think about what we have learnt from this man's life about grace, dignity and the power of reconciliation.

When ever I think of him I wonder what would have happened had he not been there...and been the very special human that he was...that is a such lot to be Thankful for.

An extraordinary life. An extraordinary man.

An extraordinary man and proof that love and reconciliation triumph over conflict and hatred.
