Morgan Freeman on Mandela's birthday: Celebrate by "donating 67 minutes"

Tonight Piers Morgan talks with Morgan Freeman as he prepares for the 2011 Nelson Mandela Day which will be held Monday, July 18. When Mandela Day was created, Mandela didn't want it to be an excuse for people to get off work. "So in order to celebrate his life," Morgan says, "to celebrate his birthday- his life- we ask anyone who is interested in that celebration to do so by donating 67 minutes of their time to some community service." You can find out more about joining in on the celebration by visiting

    How very SMALL of you to downgrade two admirable personalities in the current national political arena. So, you're predjudiced against women in politics. Just makes you look stupid. Palin & Bachman are both speaking with more intelligence than anything we've heard from the white house since your hero got elected. Give everybody a fair shake or spare us,......your ignorance. I will not be tuning in to listen to your foolish, shameful utterances ever again. God save America!

    • Love America it's all we have

      Mr. Freeman is such a genius.

      Being a true patriotic American does not mean you have to not use your brains for one thing or act as moronic as Stroman. We as a nation are falling behind because are living in our past inherited fame that was achieved by the our forefathers and the sweat of slaves. This is a new world order, Pailen and Barkmen can get there chanting beads out a pray for sanity. Lets get honest first to be a good, honest, hardworking patriotic American.
      "Chew on this figure – $123,000,000,000,000. For the numerically challenged that’s $123 trillion and China’s estimated economy in the year 2040. For perspective, the US economy is worth some $14 trillion today. What it means is China will soon become a colossus and the US will have to simply take a deep breath and retreat. If India gets it act right, it could top China. These figures are giving nightmares to Western conservative think tanks" ...... and how will the chanting beads work ? We have currently, more than 35 million Americans that are starving because our leaders lied to us to wage war looking for WMD.Our economy has almost collapsed because of Bush single handed ignorance. Where was Pailen and Barkmen then ?? Please wake up.
      Love America first to be a patriotic American.

    This is my first time commenting on a show of any type. I only caught the last 10 minutes but that was a great fresh breath of air after a long night of work. He (Mr. Freeman) is so well spoken it made my night.
