In which we remember a real superhero...

We can't find any of our "real" candles, so these are standing in....

Maddy told me about Nelson Mandela back over the summer, when he was in the hospital.

Who says superheros don't exist? He brought justice to a country that didn't have any, freed a lot of people and brought everyone together - as their elected leader. And he didn't start a war to do it. He did it through peace.

Sounds like a superhero to me....


  1. I admit, I don't know much about human history, though I have heard his name before. As humans go, he sounds like one of the better ones. It's sad that he's gone. Rest well, superhero human.

  2. Truly a remarkable man, and I too have learned more about him since his death. To bring people together like he did does indeed make him a superhero to us all
