He is not out of the woods but he is on the mend. Nelson Mandela is doing better, hospital officials say . The 94 year old is responding to the medication they have been giving him. This news is a relief to the millions who were holding their breath over this weekend.
His work is not done. He still has the heartbeat of a grateful nation. Forty-nine years ago yesterday Mandela was sentenced to life in prison, so I guess he is technically on his second life because he is still around and he is not in prison. Way to go Mr. President let your country know that you are still there for them.
