    Jun 10,`13 -- Nelson Mandela was in serious but stable condition in a Pretoria hospital for the third day Monday with a recurring lung infection, and a foundation led by retired archbishop Desmond Tutu described the 94-year-old anti-apartheid hero as an "extraordinary gift" to South Africa.

    I am glad freedom fighter Nelson Mandela lived to see his dreams for his country come to fruition. I am however disturbed by people who do not seem to realize that past 70 years of age, a person in fact lives on bonus years.

    Thus, it is selfish and inhumane to keep propping the failed organs of seniors such as Nelson Mandela and George H. Bush who have lived past their full human lifespan. When a person has lived past the expected human lifespan of 70 years, please let him/her take needed rest.
