The world has lost a great leader in Nelson Mandela. He helped destroy Apartheid in South Africa and overcame hardship including 27 years in prison to show the world the meaning of peaceful resistance.
He went on to become President of his country and displayed remarkable forgiveness to work with the people who tortured him in order to get the country forward.
Mandela passed away at the age of 95 having accomplished so much against impossible odds. The world is better because of him.
And he will be missed. Very much so.
