The world lost a truly remarkable man today. Nelson Mandela is a name that was familiar to me since I can remember. Much like anyone my age. I didn’t understand his significance until I was an adult. Though he was 95 years old and of failing health, it seems unreal to me that he is now gone. The sheer familiarity of his name globally is astonishing. It was easy to mistake him as immortal. I suppose he is, after all he will forever remain in our hearts and minds.
