Happy Birthday - Nelson Mandela

One of my heroes when I was growing up was Nelson Mandela, he celebrates his 90th bithday today.
More here.
I remember as if it was only yesterday watching and waiting for him and Winnie to walk out of prison. Where he had been held for 27 years.
Nelson Mandela has worked tirelessly for the people of South Africa and there is much more to do. Freedom was one thing, but the poverty, AIDS problems have yet to be tackled and need much more support and campaigning to ensure freedom is meaningful.
