The world Says Farewell to a beloved leader

Few leaders, past or present, will have the long-lasting legacy of the late South African president, Nelson Mandela.

From his inspirational story of fighting against racism in his home country, to his decades-long imprisionment for fighting for what he believed in, there is no doubt that Mandela will continue to inspire future generations of people from around the world.

This week, millions around the world watched as Mandela was laid to rest in South Africa. The funeral brought together celebrities and dignitaries from around the world, who came together to pay tribute to a man who had considerable influence on the world for nearly half a century.

Mandela, a former anti-apartheid revolutionary who would later become the first black president of South Africa, died earlier this month at the age of 95 after a series of health issues.

At the funeral, United States president Barack Obama spoke about Mandela's influence on the world, as well as on people of his own country.

Obama also said during his speech that the world would never seen another like Mandela- which is probably right.
