Nelson Mandella Passed Away Today

Nelson Mendella passed away today.  It has been a wonderful thing that, while in the background and somewhat as a spectator, we watch with amazement as he was released from prison and lead a peaceful transition to free elections.  Hard to believe that some who had the right to hate developed the ability love and lead a whole nation through a reconciliation process.  We were here in the country and we watched it all.  Amazing that we are back in South Africa when Madiba passes away.  The whole country is coming to a stand still as people pause to honor one of the worlds greatest leaders.  We are thankful to be here again.  He has left a wonderful legacy which we have been a bakery small part of.  Tara, takes the time to honor him at the South African Embassy in Washington DC in the United States.
