Nelson Mandela – Gone Home!

"The Scout Movement is a world leader in educating youth. Scouting inspires patriotism, sound moral values, courage, character-building, self-reliance and community awareness. It also motivates our young people to achieve their full potential."
- Nelson Rolihlala Mandela (1918-2013)

South Africa’s anti apartheid icon, Nobel prize laureate and a great supporter of Scouting, Nelson Mandela - passed away on 06 December 2013. Scouts from around the world have received this news with great sadness.

Known dearly as Madiba, Nelson Mandela was the Patron of South Africa Scout Association.

Scott Teare, the Secretary General of WOSM said: “He is and will remain a great inspiration for all Scouts around the world. Today, over 40 million Scouts join the rest of the world in mourning for this great loss and we pray for his soul to rest in peace.”

No words of mine will suffice – I may but borrow the words of others: “It is hard indeed to believe that one of so great wisdom, and of power - for many wonderful things he did among us - could perish, and so much lore be taken from the world.” J.R.R. Tolkien in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ (J.R.R. Tolkien was a patrol leader in Scouting before going up to Oxford University)

Nelson Mandela has been greatest inspiration of this era. He has been referred as Second Gandhian in India. His movement for Non-Aparthied stands the most. He has been greatest lovalble person in all over the country. May his legacy stands for forever and difference between whites and blacks would be abolished from this world. May his Soul Rest in Peace. With lots of tears and sadness. -Santosh Ram Murthy BS&G, India
