Nelson Mandela’s Gread-Granddaughter killed in Crash: Every day of your life is a page of your history.

It is difficult to dissociate Nelson Mandela’s personal life from South African destiny. The former South African president — expected to be in the stadium for the opening of the first soccer World Cup on the African continent — was hit by tragedy. The day of the musical celebration of the biggest world sporting event, he lost one of his great granddaughters.

We certainly will never say enough about the life of this great figure and what he has endured all his life. Fortunately, or unfortunately, he has had a long life. For sure, no grandparents or great grandparents wish to see their descendants pass on before them.

At his age, Mandela certainly needs a break from tragedies. Unfortunately, the longer you live, the more you will see. As the Arabs of Morocco say, “Every day of your life is a page of your history.”
