Nelson Mandela is Dead at 95

Nelson Mandela the great is dead. He sacrificed alot for South Africa when he stayed in prison for 27 years during his youth to free his country out of apartheid. The South African President Jacob Zuma announced his death late Thursday. Mandela was 95.

"He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said. "Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."
"What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human," the president said in his late-night address. "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."

Mandela was on life support machine few months back which many people thought he would not come out a of. Well, he survived but he is gone today. 

Mandela was a fighter and I hope South Africa and the world at large will have people who fight better than him.
