Nelson Mandela dies at the age of 95

A great man has left this earth. Today Dec 5, 2013 Nelson Mandela the first Black President of South Africa has passed away. He died in a South African hospital at the age of 95  and had been fighting illnesses majority of this year. 

I'm sadden to hear of the passing of such a magnificent individual. This was a man that changed the world and was not afraid to fight against racist apartheid rule and standup for what he thought was right. Mandela is to South Africa what MLK is to America. 

Mandela became president of South Africa in 1994 after being released from 27 years of imprisonment in 1990. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his hard work and efforts. The same award that Martin Luther King Jr received. 

As long as I live I will always remember Mandela and what he did for his country. Make sure you guys support the release of his movie. RIP Nelson Mandela you will truly be missed
