Nelson Mandela. We love you

The world woke to news of Nelson Mandela's passing this morning at 95 years of age. Nelson Mandela was one of the most prolific Presidents of South Africa, no, of the world. July 18th 1918 - December 5th 2013. I can't even put into words how much Nelson Mandela means to me and so many others. He is a true inspiration, one of the greatest leaders, presidents, politian's..
 
His legacy will live on forever. Mandela has unified a nation, fought for peace, freedom, harmony, equality and justice. I respect Mandela so wholeheartedly. I'm truly proud to be a part of his generation, to have witnessed his contribution to society, societies globally, and his determination to fight to allow people to live together fairly, regardless of race. What an incredible man. We love you Mandela. Free at last.
 
"Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity." - Nelson Mandela, 1994
 
My favourite quote:
"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times
I fell down and got back up again." - Nelson Mandela
