Nelson Mandela.

Wow, Dec. 5th, we lost a hero, an icon, a leader, a legend.  Nelson Mandela who had fought so long for the civil right of South Africans, had been battling for a few years with health issues.  On Dec. 5th, he passed away.  Nelson Mandela was a great man who inspired more than his nation but, people all over the nation.  It brings tears to my eyes to hear the news we have lost another legend, despite his age Mandela managed to keep a positive spirit.  It almost seems unreal.  As a college student, I look up to people such as Nelson Mandela because I see their legacy and journey as inspiration to keep going.  Nelson Mandela hard work and determination will never be forgotten. RIP Nelson Mandela

“When people are determined they can overcome anything.” -Nelson Mandela

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

"A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination."

RIP Nelson Mandela.
