Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013

Hey Readers,

At first, I wasn’t going to write a post about Nelson Mandela’s passing, but after I saw this link on a friend’s Facebook page (Thanks, BSH!), I felt I had to share this with you.

Nelson Mandela was an amazing figure.  I can’t say he was just a person, because, while he lived, he was what many people aspired to be.  He was also a constant fighter, finally succumbing to his lung infection.  I spoke to my mother about this for a few moments over the phone today, and, yes, we were sad that Mandela had died, but we both agreed that we were happy that he was finally at peace.

This was one of my favourite quotes from a truly wonderful man:

Maybe one day, all of us can take these words to heart, and make this world better for everyone.

Until my next post, Readers!

Reese.
