I was just thinking yesterday, "Wonder how he's doing?".

RIP to the man.

RIP Mr Mandela.

The media will be over the moon. They have been waiting like vultures for years! Every time he sneezed or coughed there was a media frenzy awaiting that fateful moment.

I was hoping he had been okay as I hadn't heard anything about his ill health in a while, shame really.

I was talking about him to someone in work the other day, and I was stuck for what to say when she asked me: "So who was the first black man?" :shock:
