It is more than remarkable that someone could be the target of unthinkable acts by a racist government and yet when it was his turn he chose reconciliation over revenge.Nelson Mandela like Ghandi,King and Frankl chose love over hate and portrayed the reality that love is more powerful than hate. Instead of the sword he offered the olive branch and avoided years of unnecessary killing. Most, if not all of us carry some sort of scars rom perceived ill treatment by others. They pale compared to the pain and suffering of Apartheid, but his life is a model for us to seek reconciliation rather than justification. The world has been blessed to witness the extraordinary courage and commitment of this rare and special person.
