Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, former South African President and human rights activist Nelson who spent 27 years in prison, led his country to democracy and became its first black president, died Thursday December 5, 2013 at home. He was 95.
His life was an inspiration to Africans, home and abroad. Though he was in power for only five years, Mandela was a figure of enormous moral influence the world over – a symbol of revolution, resistance and triumph over racial segregation.  He inspired a generation of activists, left celebrities and world leaders star-struck, won the Nobel Peace Prize and raised millions for humanitarian causes.

 His health had been fragile in recent years. He had spent almost three months in a hospital in Pretoria after being admitted in June for a recurring lung infection.  He was released on Sept. 1 and officials had said only that he was responding to treatment until a flurry of activity outside his Johannesburg home Thursday evening, followed by the official announcement of his death.
An Icon, A Legend, an all-round AMAZING MAN… We’ll all be forever thankful to God that he was born… R.I.P Madiba!!!
