I want to pay my tribute to the great man, who, with the power of education and immense courage changed the picture of South Africa.. He should be highly respected as he endured a lot for the freedom of his country. May god send him to heaven. He has fought against race discrimination which is the main cause of many deprivation of human rights. He was tortured, ill things have been said about him, but he still stood straightforward for the cause he supported. People of his country and of the...

In respect to the late hon. Nelson Mandela, this short message should help all of us show case our tribute based on Tata's unconditional love for children. "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." R.I.P Nelson Madiba Mandela.

Nelson Mandela you may be gone, but your dreams, aspirations and legacy lives on. You were a leader like none. You treated everyone equally in spite of their race, color or position in society. It is through you that whites and blacks learned to live and work together. Today you are no more, but we, the youths of today will try to emulate you and continue the fight for a better tomorrow. You have done your part and did it greatly. It's now up to me and my fellow youths around the w...


You were the Moses of this era.

Some men are born, others are forged by the situations and circumstances that surround them, but they turn around to change the tides. RIP FATHER OF ALL. HOPE YOUR EXAMPLE WILL BE EMULATED BY OTHERS WHO WILL LEAD US. The Peace you brought to the world is the peace you leave with the world. RIP

“…It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Mandela, 1964 Nelson Rolihlalhla Mandela is an icon celebrated globally more for his conviction than his achievements. Someone tweeted; “Mandela set out on the long walk to freedom but ended up at humble.” This is a man who stood for something and was ready to lose so much more for it; sadly, this is nothing we can say of today’s breed of yo...

Remembering Nelson Mandela and His Fight for Climate Justice By Brentin Mock Tue. December 10, 2013. Nelson Mandela, who died last week, is best known for his fight against South African apartheid. But his long walk to freedom also included steps toward solving this mammoth problem called climate change. He envisioned a world where all people are able to live a fully dignified life, with clean air to breathe and clean water to drink—and where poor countries are not left with the repercussions...

Each and every day we seek to have a better world, a better society, a better generation, or a better family. Yet we fail to change our mindset about how we treat people around us, our environment and the ecosystem, and the organisms that exists around us. For us to get the best out of life and the environment, we have to make up our minds to change the way we react to basic issues in our life which have negative impact on others. A great American leader in the past once said "Ask not what your...

I want to dedicate this article for Nelson Mandela, a true leader that has inspired me in so many ways. On July, 18, 1918. A baby boy named Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Mvezo, a tiny village in the Transkei, a former British protectorate in South Africa. He then recalls growing up in the small village of Qunu. You may find “Rohilahla Mandela” unfamiliar, but yeah, I’m talking about Nelson Mandela, a statesman whose life and death inspire millions of people around the wo...
