Freedom fighter, prisoner, moral compass and South Africa’s symbol of the struggle against racial oppression.  That was Nelson Mandela, who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead his country out of decades of apartheid.  He died Thursday night at age 95.  His message of reconciliation, not vengeance, inspired the world after he negotiated a peaceful end to segregation and urged forgiveness for the white government that imprisoned him.  “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,” Mandela said after he was freed in 1990.  Mandela, a former president, battled health issues in recent years, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations.  Despite rare public appearances, he held a special place in the consciousnesss of the nation and the world.  “Our nation has lost its greates son.  Our people have lost a father,” South African President Jacob Zuma said.  “What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human.  We saw in him what we seek in ourselves.”  Nelson Mandela had strong ties to Canada, where he found support and inspiration in his fight against apartheid.  “Your respect for diversity within your own society and your tolerance and civilized manner of dealing with the challenges of difference and diversity had always been our inspiration.”  In November 2001 he became an honorary citizen of Canada.  Canada, with the rest of the world will miss him.
