Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013

I grew up in Pretoria, South Africa, less than half a mile from the president’s home. In 1994, when Nelson Mandela became president  and lived there for the next five years, I saw the unthinkable become  a reality. For his courage, his dedication, and his compassion,  Mandela is one of my greatest inspirations.
