"Mandela was a hero to the peoples and Governments of Latin America"

Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic president Danilo Medina expressed condolences for the death of the South African leader through several messages on Twitter.

"Mandela made his life a permanent and profound exercise of tolerance, respect for diversity of thought and freedom," Medina wrote in the social network.

Other Latin American leaders depicted Mandela in similar manner, to honor giant of our time.

Along with a few innocents- DEAD Injakszi
Like Fernandez = how many died due to a lack of Hospital care and medicines for the poor so he and his Twinkies could steal our country blind. Like Mandela and his family!

The world should have more people with the humanity of Mandela. He deserves his rest.

What is most remarkable he did not let his mind and heart be the poisoned by his incarcerations.

People should take notice of the benefits of this behavior.

Nelson Mandela (Madiba), was indeed the last of greats of the 20th century. If you guys go back in the history of the human race, we have been privilege to walk on the same earth with people such as: Da Vinchi, Newton, Einstein, Lincoln, MLK, and Mandela - these men alone reshaped the way of life for an entire world. Above all they have all been able to cheat death, which is the greatest achievement of any human being.

However, what impressed me the most about Mandela was his ardent believe that love, compassion, and above all RECONCILIATION was more powerful than hate, separation and XENOPHOBIA. He could have been reciprocal towards those that created so much pain and suffering for the natives, but instead he preached reconciliation and the outcome has been wonderful.

The more we try to make ourselves different from one another, the weaker we are, however, the more we try to find commonality among each each other the stronger we are.

Is undeniable that he was a great man, and a great human being, but he also sided with people like Kadafi, and Arafat.

Wrong

Almost the entire planet did, and rightly so IMHO.

Note the first county he visited after becoming President was Australia, to thank the Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawk, for leading the sanctions that brought about the collapse of the Apartheid government.

What role did the Dominican Republic play - nothing as usual?
