The opportunities of man:
This man had a will, hope and a believe beyond normal people. He was in prison for 27 years just for believing in freedom and rights for the people.
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918 to December 5, 2013) was a nonviolence anti-apartheid activist, politician and philanthropist who became South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999. Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. Beginning in 1962, Mandela spent 27 years in prison for political offenses. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country’s apartheid system. For generations to come, Nelson Mandela will continue to be a source of inspiration for civil rights activistsworldwide.
Do you know this feeling when you turn back to places you haven´t seen for years?
On December 5, 2013, at the age of 95, Nelson Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg, South Africa. After suffering a lung infection in January 2011, Mandela was briefly hospitalized in Johannesburg to undergo surgery for a stomach ailment in early 2012. He was released after a few days, later returning to Qunu. Mandela would be hospitalized many times over the next several years — in December 2012, March 2013 and June 2013 — for further testing and medical treatment relating to his recurrent lung infection.
It is hard to pay tribute to Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the man who led South Africa out of apartheid into democracy and for whom the accolades have rolled in from practically every corner of the earth. With his passing, he will be remembered for his generosity of spirit and the remarkable achievement of bringing peace to a deeply divided country.
Here I have tried to honor a very great man. I salute you humbly Mandela. May you guide human kind many years to come. We need people like you to keep us in the right direction.
