Been a bit of an interlude due to being either bedbound and shattered or busy, so not the planned verses for the last few days, but today, part of one from memory...' [the righteous/one who submits to God] ... is one who, when wronged, is slow to anger and quick to forgive' and half a verse from the Gospel too, 'blessed are the peacemakers'. One who comes to power in such cirucmumstaces as mandela who then forgives and does not take revenge is a rare and precious human soul, may mandela  rest in peace. He belongs to history now.

I was very struck by coverage on TV talking about how he forgave people and resolved to move forward as a country united in forgiveness.

Yes, it is the thing that makes him so unique and special in this world.

My South African friend is currently sharing photos and videos, including one of her and her aides with Mandela.
