I am always uncomfortable when I hear this used as a postive example.

Mr. Mandela was imprisoned for a variety of violent crimes.  He admitted to
his acts of sabotage.  He was offered freedome on the condition that he
renounce violence, but he refused the offer.

I cannot see anything praise worthy in these actions.

If we are to speak of anti-apartheid leaders who inspired people in ways
which should be emulated, then we need to tell the story of Mkhuseli Jack. 
Mr. Jack was a key leader in the peaceful boycotts and labor strikes which
brought down the oppressive government.

To the world you may be just one person,
but to one person you may be the world.
