An Interview with mayacourt

Last updated: 4/14/2001
The Fool:
Is there a public figure that inspires you?
mayacourt:
Nelson Mandela, perhaps the greatest leader of the 20th century. How many of us could have held on to our commitments after 27 years in jail, to rise to the leader of a nation. His commitment was build on love, not hate. His fight was not for himself but for all people of his nation, a multi-racial democracy.

"I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die. "
Nelson Mandela, Pretoria Supreme Court, 20 April 1964
