    RE; MANDELA:
    I have seen many tribute and comments on Mandela and changes in South Africa. We have missed somebody who played an important in bringing change in South Africa and release political prisoners that person is Ted Koppel in KNIGHT LINE. Day after day he brought to our homes the injust laws against Human Rights.
    I saw the effect it was having on our opinion. people started speaking out against the white rule in South Africa. American public started understanding how unjust was the S.A. government.
    This led to S.A. started talking to Mandela. In the end he was released.
    I personally feel Night Lane played important part.
