Carl's Tribute
Cape Town,on the Parade,February 11 1990. We had been waiting since noon and the sun was setting.There had been shootings and we were wondering if you would appear.Everyone was restless and on edge,then it was real. "Comrades and fellow South Africans, I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands..." Then I knew we were in the presence of a remarkable human being and reading over your speech now still evokes many strong emotions. God Bless
