Today I learned of the passing of one of the greatest men to ever walk this earth. Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95 after battling symtoms related to tuberculosis (he got it while serving 27 years in prison). Nelson taught me lots of things. He taught me how to be a leader, to stick up for things, and to face whatever is thrown at you. A great man who fought against apartheid, you shall be honoured in our hearts. The first black president of South Africa, you truly were a great leader. The last time I actually recall seeing you was when you were at the 2010 World Cup finals. Rest in peace Madiba.
