  • Thank you Mandela for teaching us not only the courage to stand up for what you believe in, but also for sacrificing so much. May you now rest in peace. randy45December 5, 2013

    • Thank you for making the world a better and more free place. Your contributions and passion to change the world will never be forgotten. RIP Nelson Mandela. asdfDecember 5, 2013

      • Today we lost not only a great man; we also lost one of the world’s greatest leaders. Wherever he went, he would make people smile, laugh and feel completely at home. sup3rDecember 5, 2013

        • One of the most influental names in our lifetime. Even though I wasn't around to truly understand his achievements, I can definitely appreciate them. Thank you Mandela, and may you forever rest in peace. jasonMDecember 5, 2013

          • Another angel has been taken from this world, but he will never be forgotten. So many lives touched by him, so many countries changed by him, and so many principles created from him. Thank you Mandela for showing us that anything is possible. kyle95December 5, 2013

            • You know it's funny, I never really remember much from my history classes, but Nelson Mendela was one of the things I actually did remember. That just goes to show you how much of an impact he made and how hard it is to forget about him and his work. Thanks Mandela, I probably will never be abe to comprehend just how much of a difference you made, but I definitely will remember you forever. RIP. blueracerDecember 5, 2013

                        • Too young to really understand how much of a difference you made, but not that young to know it changed the world for the better. I hope that now you can truly rest in peace. wildcat4December 5, 2013

                          • Mandela reminds us that it's possible for a single man to create peace amidst a huge push for war. Forgiveness is the first step in changing a society, without it we are doomed to repeat the failures of our ancestors. He continues to be an inspiration, particularly us Africans. Rest in peace Madiba. jordan23December 5, 2013

                                            • To be honest, I really don't know what to say. Way too young to remember anything about him besides what I learned in school, so I probably am not the best person to really understand his achievements. But based on the responses from everyone here and around the web and world I have to assume he was a big deal and obviously will not be forgotten. So with that, may you rest in peace, and thank you for those lives you did touch and change. mattkDecember 6, 2013
