Some sad news, anti apartheid leader and the first President of a biracial South Africa passed away earlier today. In response former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore commented:
"My heart is filled with grief after hearing the news that one of the most celebrated leaders of our time, President Nelson Mandela of South Africa, has died. My heart goes out to the nation he helped transform, to all of those who lives he touched and the generation of activists he inspired."
Mandela inspired millions. He will be missed.
