Why Nelson Mandela continues to be a hero
Nelson Mandela announced that his only surviving son, Makgatho, 54, died of AIDS. In a country where over 600 people die of AIDS each day, but is a social taboo to say so, Mandela publicly said what is never said. Imagine if we had a leader who could speak the truth.
Heck, George Bush can't even think of a single mistake he's made. We often say that the American president is the most powerful man in the world. Really? Who would you say is the most powerful, George Bush or Nelson Mandela?
