On Thursday, December 5 we lost a legendary man that will never be forgotten. Nelson Mandela, a courageous, unwavering political and social leader of South Africa and the world, has left us with a beautiful legacy.
In the Mandela family's first public statement since his death, his family members shared these words about their patriarch:
1. "I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances."
