NELSON MANDELA TURNS 100
Today it is my HONOR to post on my website, that one of the greatest men who ever lived would have turned 100 years old today.
Writer, President (non-U.S.), Civil Rights Activist (1918–2013)
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918 to December 5, 2013) was a nonviolence anti-apartheid activist, politician and philanthropist who became South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999.
Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942.
For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies.
Beginning in 1962, Mandela spent 27 years in prison for political offenses.
In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country’s apartheid system.
For generations to come, Nelson Mandela will continue to be a source of inspiration for civil rights activists worldwide. (SOURCE)
You know – if you really look into history, this was truly a great man. He spent 27 years in PRISON for Political Offenses – then got out, became President, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
What a great example, of someone, who after 27 years in a Prison, was able to come out – and change the world.
Let’s continue to learn, inspire, love, and make 2018 one of the Best Damn Year’s to be alive.
NEVER GIVE UP – and MAY GOD ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER !!!
Experience The Number 28
