If you’re not sure about who Mandela is, read our article written to find out more about him.
I had the amazing opportunity to talk to people that knew him, and talked to him before and I found it beautiful because one of them just had one conversation with him, but she speaks as if she knew him forever.
This is what some people said about Nelson Mandela.
'I believe that God sends a few people every so often to come to this world to change it significantly for the better. Nelson Mandela was one of them. I was speaking to some fishermen a few years ago, and when I brought up his name, the fishermens eyes lit up brighter than the sun behind us.'
‘I worked with him in the UWC movement a long time ago, and I had learned so much from those few months than I did my whole life. The way he speaks just moved me. ‘
'He may be an icon to some people, he may also be someone who changed the world for some people. He may also be a terrorist to some people. But to me, he is a person. He is a person that had the drive none of us did, and this led him to change the world for the better. '
Rest In Peace, Nelson Mandela. You will be among the stars in the sky. You have changed so many lives.
