On 5th, December, 2013, the South Africa’s former President and the Nobel winner Nelson R. Mandela had passed away. Suddenly, the whole world was in deep mourning for this great man. In his extraordinary life, he had made marvelous contribution to his country, also to this world.
Born in a small village in South Africa, Mandela was one of the 13 children of a tribe chief. Unlike his father, he didn’t want to use his social status to oppress his people. Deep in his heart, he wanted to start the national liberation movement, and help the black people to live freely. In 1944, Mandela was actively involved in different kinds of campaign, aimed to fight for the rights for the majority blacks without violence resistance in the country. In 1961, he became the anti-apartheid leader, and won the honor of all the black people. However, Mandela was arrested for treason but later was acquitted. In 1962, the South Africa government was arrest him for the same excuse and he started his prison life for 27 years. But the hard life in prison never changed his faith that he would build an equal, free new Africa. He is such a great fighter that he finally released from prison. He believed that the world would become peace and equal. There is no racial discrimination.
Just like he used to say, no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
Rest In Peace，Mandela.
