Mandela Day

south_africaHappy Mandela Day!

 

Today, July 18, marks the birth anniversary of one of the greatest leaders this world has ever known. Nelson Mandela entered this world July 18, 1918 under the name of Rolihlahla Mandela, into the Madiba clan in the village of Mvezo, Transkei. 

As the son of the principal counsellor to the Acting King of their tribe, Mandela grew up hearing stories of great ancestors and seeing the valor his leaders possessed. As a result, he dreamed of one day also making a difference for his people.

When he entered primary school, his teacher gave him the name Nelson, which would follow him until the end of his days and be the name that millions of people would chant in the streets and tell stories about. Mandela

Known for his protests that led to a 28 year prison sentence (1962-1990), Mandela also managed to emerge from his decades of imprisonment and become South Africa’s first democratically inaugurated president only 4 short years later, in 1994. This presidency led to a whole new world of life-changing and world-altering decisions and experiences, thus in 2009, the United Nations declared Mandela Day to be celebrated each year on his birthday.

When President Mandela passed away December 5, 2013, the entire world wept for the loss of such a great leader. For years to come, this wonderful man will be remembered, learned about, and celebrated. It’s important to recognize our world’s greatest heroes, and Rolihlahla [Nelson] Mandela was surely one of them.
