Nelson Mandela, who was instrumental in ending apartheid in South Africa and rose from prisoner to president, is celebrating his 90th birthday.

(..)

He reduced a veteran white police officer to tears on his inauguration day when he walked over to him, shook his hand and told him "today you have become our police".

Still kicking it at 90 years old. This guy is a living legend who has done so
much for his country and the world as a whole. He will be remembered forever.
Good man Nelson, now give us 10 more years to the biggy. :)

He is an absolute legend, i may be biased because we share the same birthday but still, i may have missed 73 years of his life, but i know enough about him for me to consider him a legend.

prison grub must be good for you !!!

steve biko and mandela both amazing men .

amazing to think that the states was almost as bad as south africa as recently as the late sixties . a country that prided itself by saying all men were created equal telling the black man to get to back of the bus ! rosa parks was a little known woman but just as important as nelson in my eyes
