Goodbye, Madiba

When we think of Nelson Mandela, he is usually smiling (a trait he shares with Bishop Tutu & Mahatma Gandhi). It isn't the pasted smile of a celebrity or the smile of someone intending to deceive you. It is the smile of a man  more accustomed to smiling than frowning. Despite the great trials he had endured.  His smile reached people before his words did. It communicated his irrepressible hope.
