Photographer's Note

Yesterday I heard that Nelson Mandela was admitted to hospital, today I read with relief that he has gone home.At 93 years of age he looks very frail but still manages to smile in his inimitable, radiant way. May his "light" be with us for ever.
I was inside his former home and the most chilling thing I saw there were the marks on the floor of a brick wall(now demolished to facilitate movement) that had been built inside the house and running parallel to the window in order to stop the bullets from killing him or members of his family.Of course there were bullet holes on the outside brickwork- all a reminder of man's inhumanity to man.

"There is only one way in which one can endure man's inhumanity to man and that is to try, in one's own life, to exemplify man's humanity to man." Alan Paton
