On this day back in 1990, Nelson Mandela walked out of the prison gates. A free man again. After 27 years in jail. A hard jail. Writing or receiving one letter every six months. Imagine that! He was released and held no hatred or bitterness towards the white government that had imprisoned him. He immediately started reaching out to all of the people. Tears streamed down my face as I watched him walk free. The world was a better place with him.
