Happy birthday Madiba!

Happy Birthday indeed. But not sure that we should believe that his health is improving that much. He is old and this ailment has struck more than once now. Speaking for me, if “He responds very well… with his eyes, and he nods and sometimes he lifts his hand like to shake your hand,” and breathing with the aid of a machine were being touted as signs of huge improvement, I would just want to slip away peacefully.....

Happy Birthday Pres.

I don't know why you got so many thumbs-downs. He's repeatedly said he's tired and just wants to be left alone, and no-one is respecting his wishes. The ANC, the party his spent his life fighting for, is led by a corrupt egomaniac, and the "Rainbow nation" he dreamed of is a tragic failure.

I feel sorry for him. He's a great, moral man, but no-one seems to have any interest in respecting his leadership or wishes.

Happy Birthday!!

He still inspires people everywhere in the world. His lifetime work for peace, equality and social justice has been passed on to all of us. Together, we must move forward to make this world as a better place to live. He is a lighthouse of humanity.

Nelson Mandela! A great man! A great African! A great world freedom fighter! May you live many, many more happy years and that all of the world learn from YOU!
