Nelson Mandela died Dec 5th at the age of 95. He will always be known as a freedom fighter, prisoner and a symbol of unity to the world.

Mandela, became South Africa's first black president, after spending 27 years in prison. His message of reconciliation, not vengeance, inspired the world after he negotiated a peaceful end to segregation and urged forgiveness for the white government that imprisoned him.

"As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison," Mandela said after he was freed in 1990.

Mandela's memorial service will be on Tuesday, Dec 10th and its expected to be one of the biggest gathering of international dignitaries. The memorial service will be held at the FNB stadium where Mandela made his final public appearance during the 2010 World Cup. Mandela will be remembered for many things, but his message of forgiveness and reconciliation may stand out the most.
