REST IN PEACE NELSON MANDELA

Freedom fighter, prisoner, moral compass and South Africa’s symbol of the struggle against racial oppression – that was Nelson Mandela, who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead his country out of decades of apartheid. He died Thursday night at age 95.

 

Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do” ~ Nelson Mandela
