Nelson Mandela's legacy is known the world over, from his struggle against racism and apartheid in South Africa to his unjust imprisonment for over 25 years because he fought for equality. He passed away on Thursday, December 5th in Johannesburg, South Africa at the age of 95.
His life's story, struggles and triumph is a testament to all that is good in humanity and a portrayal of the positive change that we can accomplish when we act selflessly. Caring not just about ourselves, immediate family and friends but the well being of others as well.
May we all continue to honor his legacy by teaching our children and their children about his story and his courage in the face of adversity. He was not just a hero to South Africa but a hero for all of humanity. R.I.P Nelson Mandela and thank you for your exemplary contribution to our history!
