When Mandela says that he was 'simply the sum of all African patriots,' he means that

he could identify with the unimaginable sacrifices of all those noble and courageous

men who fought for the collective freedom of the African people. He was pained that he

could not thank them and that they could not see what their sacrifices had wrought.
