El33t’s Question of the Day: How will you remember Nelson Mandela?

Friday is usually a cause for celebration leading to the weekend, but today is very different.

After learning of the passing of the great Nelson Mandela, how will you remember this inspirational figure who so indelibly changed the course of history? Do you have a favourite memory or quote that you will hold with you?

Personally, I of course (vaguely) remember the day he was released from his 27-year exile on Robben Island, and the celebrations I saw on TV and in my neighbourhood the day he won the 1994 presidential election are forever etched in my memory, but it is his appearance at the 1995 Rugby World Cup following South Africa’s victory in the final that will remain what I think one of the most important, unifying moments for a nation so terribly broken.

What about you? How will you remember Nelson Mandela?
