Mandela’s legacy

Nelson Mandela, 95, gave up a third of his lifespan so that South Africans could live in racial harmony.

Indeed, he was a leader of the anti-apartheid movement and not even a long prison term could stop him, a prison term of more than 25 years.

He has died now, and the entire world mourns his loss. Nelson enjoyed dressing in fine clothes, and his sport was amateur boxing, which he was not bad at. He was a great man of peace who had many followers who tried to imitate his greatness.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas K. Gandhi, two great leaders themselves who died for their efforts of trying to improve civil rights, laid the groundwork, if you will, for someone like Mr. Mandela to follow.

Like King and Gandhi, Nelson paved the way for his fellow people to live in racial harmony. His courage was of great proportions — so great, in fact, that a movie of Nelson’s life is already in the making.

Without a doubt, Mr. Mandela lived his life so that others could live in racial harmony, the way that the human condition was meant to be — a rare quality among human beings — and the way for an entire world to pause and take notice.
