Día triste.

I heard the news of Nelson Mandela's death in the car and had to pull over to wipe my tears. He is the most important figure of the 20th century, one of those rare human beings capable of bending history in the right direction. He was a beacon of light in a particularly dark and violent time. Fortunately he lived long enough to see his dream come true and bask in universal love and admiration. Today the whole world is mourning. 

Oí la noticia de la muerte de Nelson Mandela cuando iba manejando y tuve que parar el carro para secarme las lagrimas. Es la figura más importante del siglo XX, uno de esos escasos seres capaces de forzar el curso de la historia en la dirección correcta. Fue un rayo de luz en un tiempo particularmente oscuro y violento. Por suerte vivió lo suficiente para ver su sueño realizado y gozar del amor y admiración de todos. Hoy el mundo está de duelo.
