The Death of a Leader.

Late last night the world lost a great man. A father of his country. A revolutionary of his generation. A man who stood for what he believed. Nelson Mandela died after a long fight with a lung infection.

Now I'm not particularly good at history, but I know that Nelson Mandela suffered in jail for 27 years just for standing up for what he believed in and for me, this is totally wrong that anyone should be punished for fighting for what they believed in. I understand that times have changed and there is now no longer such an issue between the different ethnicities but the issue of injustice still lives on.
The injustice should have been eradicated along time ago.

Nelson Mandela died after making a mark on the world. We as a globe need to make sure that the lessons learnt in his lifetime live on and that we never go back to a time of hate.

RIP Nelson Mandela July 18th 1918 - December 5th 2013
