Nelson Mandela has passed on. He apparently died of a lung infection. He was most likely the most influential leader South Africa has ever had, and he got them through a lot of tough times.
He lived a very full and meaningful life…even those long years in prison for no fault of his own except a difference of opinion. They were merely to prepare him for liberating his entire country from a system that clearly did not work.
All of his life, Mandela worked relentlessly to restore hope and unity to his people.
He loved South Africa and South Africa loved him back.
The world will miss him.
