"Mandela had been imprisoned and maltreated for 27 years. Later, at his inauguration of President, he invited three guards who had abused him to attend. When he stood up and greeted them with respect, everyone at present and even the whole world became silent. He said, 'As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.'"

Good post, Hube. I just like the fact that he held no bitterness toward his jailers or whites once he was released.

And did you see that in his Tweet about Avi's post that Busiek surprisingly acknowledged that you and I had different opinions than Avi did regarding Mandela? But see, we didn't attack Avi like he and his buddy Marz do. We respectfully disagreed.
