R.I.P. Nelson Mandela…

…The great Nelson Mandela has finally been laid to rest this morning.  There isn’t much that I can say that hasn’t already been said about this great man so I’ll leave this as quite a short posting.  On a personal front I have been deeply affected and inspired by Mr Mandela and his life and struggles for the greater good of mankind since my mid teens.  I was lucky enough to be amongst the 100,000 or so at the Nelson Mandela: An International Tribute for a Free South Africa at Wembley Stadium on 16th April, 1990, just 2 months after his release from Robben Island and what an incredible day it was…

…I have taken a couple of free hours to experiment a little and produce my dedication to Nelson Mandela – Rest in Peace Sir…
