Farewell, Madiba!

Farewell, Madiba!
The news of your death hit me like the storm blowing over my country last night. I remember the times when you were incarcerated by the abominable apartheid regime, and we took to the streets to demand freedom for you and your brothers and sisters, because we felt they were our brothers and sisters as well. Then came the joy in 1990 when they had to release you, but that wasn't the end of the struggle. You kept on fighting for a better future for everybody in your great rainbow nation. Now you are at rest and others will take the baton from your hands and they will go on fighting in your name until finally everyone will be free in South Africa - free from hunger, free from injustice, violence and corruption, free from diseases like AIDS, free from class barriers between the rich and the poor.
Farewell, Comrade Mandela!

For my English speaking friends: "When you have climbed a high mountain, all you will discover is the fact that there are many more mountains to climb." (text on the postcard)
