Nelson Mandela, who fought to end apartheid in South Africa and who became the first freely elected President, has passed away. His approach, at the end of apartheid, was to create “truth and reconciliation”, instead of revenge, thus preventing South Africa from becoming a failed state. Today, South Africa has many problems, but it remains a vibrant, succesful nation that is a great example of tolerance and unity in diversity.
