World Hero Nelson Mandela Has Died

Nelson Mandela

Civil rights hero Nelson Mandela (Madiba) passed away yesterday at the age of 95. The wonderful, courageous South African, was cruelly and unjustly jailed for 27-years for peacefully opposing apartheid. After his release, Madela, born into African royalty, became the first black President of South Africa, in a monumental moment in history and one that is proudly remembered by many.

Mandela preached a beautiful message that all are equal. Mandela, like fellow human rights advocate and civil rights hero, Martin Luther King Jr, devoted his energies to uniting blacks and whites, which is an admirable life's calling. He stood and will always stand as a symbol of peace and perseverance. The world was made better because he was in it. God bless Mandela and may he rest in peace.
