The passing of Nelson Mandela is definitely a sad occasion for everyone in his immediate family, for everyone in his homeland of South Africa, and for so many people that he touched around the world. But actually, this should be a time to celebrate and remember the life of a man who changed the culture of not only his country, but changed the culture and thinking of people around the world. One of the reasons that we need to remember is so that we can help to educate. As I was talking to a friend about the passing of Mandela, a young lady in her early twenties and of African descent, asked innocently. Who is Nelson Mandela? After a brief moment of silence we attempted to enlighten her about the legacy of Nelson Mandela and what he accomplished in his life. After which, she promptly got on her phone and started doing some researching of her own.

It is that kind of inspiration that just talking about Nelson Mandela can and should have on everyone who strives to make changes when they see wrong being done. And anyone who wants to see people being treated as equal regardless of the color of their skin. But Nelson Mandela went one further, he sacrificed his own freedom for the liberation of a people and of a country that he loved. Who was Nelson Mandela? Just one of the most courageous, inspirational, intelligent, and well respected people in history. Thank you, Mr. Mandela for everything that you taught all of us.
