With military pomp and traditional rituals, South Africa buried Nelson Mandela on Sunday, the end of an extraordinary journey for the prisoner turned president who transformed the nation. Mandela was laid to rest in his childhood village of Qunu.
Nelson Mandela is the epitome of what we all should strive to be, and his many contributions to society will forever shape the world. He will be missed dearly, but he is in a better place, looking down upon us. Hopefully as he looks down upon us we don’t disappoint him.
Rest In Paradise Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela July 18,1918-December 5, 2013
