Nelson Mandela, the beloved South African anti-apartheid politician who became his country's first black president and inspired millions of freedom lovers worldwide, died Thursday at his home at the age of 95. "Our nation has lost his greatest son. Our people have lost its father," said South African President Jacob Zuma after the passing of the larger-than-life figure who spent 27 years in jail defending his beliefs.
In his autobiography, "Long Walk to Freedom," he wrote: "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite," and his words have been a source of hope for people around the world. R.I.P. Madiba; you will not be forgotten.
