I remember where I was when he was released from prison, he had been held for 27 years in 1990.  My first husband and I were on our way to my parents in Alexandria when we got there it was all over the news.

Pj and I saw the movie “Invictus” staring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. It was a wonderful movie filled with a lot of history but it was told in such a way that you really understood the struggle of what Mr. Mandela went through, and how much he was loved.

As Kevin Rudd tweeted today: A light just went out across the world
