Yesterday my mother, then a few friend texted me to informed me of the passing of Mr. Nelson Mandela. This brought a sudden sadness to my heart. Then I thought to myself; why be sad? I shiuld be happy that this man had lived. His selfless achievement s has contributed to all of us in this world in one way or another. I am just grateful to have existed in the same era as he did. May the heavens let him in.
