"Man’s goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished." - Nelson Mandela
This photo is from the meeting between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela in 2004. Earlier this year, when the ailing Mandela was hospitalized, the Dalai Lama expressed remorse at not being able to visit South Africa to see him for a last time due to his Visa being denied by the government officials.
Now it is with deep sadness that we had to see this day, this passing of one of the greatest men whose struggles and sacrifices shaped not just a nation, but our whole world.
Rest in peace, Madiba. Your legacy will live on.
