Give Mandela the peace he deserves

  • Article
text size: AAA

Nelson Mandela is a hero bordering on sainthood to many in South Africa, and he is respected throughout the world. He has been in the hospital four times in the last six months for the same lung problem, which originated from his contracting tuberculosis during his many years in captivity. The man is 94 years old. The greatest gift his nation can give him is peace. South Africa should revere him, always remember him, but let him die in peace and dignity.
