This was the response from a South African Soldier upon hearing about the passing of Tata Madiba.

"I have a sad sense of inevitability, that it was time that an old warrior passed on. He has handed his baton over to those who follow, and it is now up to us to live up to his legacy of selfless dedication to the cause of freedom and non racialism. Emotionally I'm devastated."

What is left to say when everything has been said.
