When Greatness Walked Among Us: Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

“I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black
domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society
in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal 
opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. 
But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

Nelson Mandela spoke these words from the dock at the Rivonia Treason Trial on 
April 20, 1964. Through his words and actions ever since, Mandela has 
been embraced worldwide as a symbol of courage, hope, and 
reconciliation.
