Entire World mourns the loss of NELSON MANDELA, the Leader who was fighting for the dignity in our societies. Like President Obama said:"€ He no longer belongs to us; he belongs to the ages"€.
I was fortunate to meet Him personally for a several times in my life and to feel His glory and, what is even more important, His simplicity and humbleness.
For the first time I met Mandela in June 13, 1990 when He gave a speech at European Parliament after being released from the prison, where He spent 27 years of His life.

For the second time I met Him during the Conference, organized at the Belgian Senate.
