Quote of the Day

It took a man like Madiba to free not just the prisoner, but the jailor as well, to show that you must trust others so that they may trust you, to teach that reconciliation is not a matter of ignoring a cruel past, but a means of confronting it with inclusion, generosity and truth. He changed laws, but he also changed hearts.”  -- President Obama, speaking in South Africa at today's memorial for the late Nelson Mandela.  Leaders from around the world -- including former Presidents Bush, Clinton and Carter -- are paying tribute to the iconic liberator of South Africa.  Mandela's burial will be on December 15 in his family's village.
