Does it really matter if Nelson Mandela dies, as long as Morgan Freeman is still alive?
And what does this say about the line between reality and film?
Before you criticize me for publishing this now, keep in mind that all (!) the newspapers have already written their obituaries for Nelson Mandela. They are just waiting for the news to come in so that they can press the “publish” button.
Nelson Mandela is a great man. But he is 94 years old and he spent 27 of those years in prison. Of course his health is frail and he will pass away soon. Realising and accepting this is the more dignified way to handle the inevitable than “to pray” or to put hope in other voodoo practices or to claim that a nation’s future will be threatened if one old man will stop breathing.
He lived to see the results of his struggle. I don’t know what more one can expect from life.
