RIP Madiba

Today we woke up to the news of the passing of one of the world’s greatest individuals.  Mr. Mandela was willing to sacrifice his life to make a difference in the lives of all others.  His dignity; his willingness to forgive and bear no grudges; his humility; his passion, his drive, his commitment to his fellow South Africans and to the world are just a small part of the legacy left by this great man.  Amongst other things he used sport to help unite a nation and he was able to embrace people and symbols that were previously a part of his own personal trauma.  He was a leader extraordinaire, a remarkable human being.  A true Icon.  RIP Madiba.
