Nelson Mandela Dies. May He Rest In Peace.

The hero that is Mr. Nelson Mandela

The hero that is Mr. Nelson Mandela

I was incredibly sad to hear about the death of one of my idols Nelson Mandela at the age of 95 today. Mandela was a person who was so inspiring. He did so much selflessly for the rights of coloured people and even served 27 years in prison for justice. He is one of those people who is an inspiration to us all and shows us that there is people in this world who genuinely want to help others.

President Zuma said: “The nation has lost its greatest son”, adding “he is now resting. He is now at peace.”
And he was such a good man that he deserves to be. That is after all what he wanted to bring to the world. Peace.
The President also said,
“He passed on peacefully in the company of his family around 20:50 on the 5th of December 2013.”
It is comforting to know that he was surrounded by those he loved when he died.
