Nelson Mandela Day

Today is the the 18th anniversary of the release of Nelson Mandela from his 25 year imprisonment by the Apartheid government of South Africa.

"I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." - Nelson Mandella
