Such sad news today!

Nelson Mandela has passed away at the age of 95.

Being a prominent political figure, people are remembering this great man.

Both former president's George H.W. Bush Sr. & George W. Bush Jr. have given their condolences to Nelson Mandela's memory and his family.

Former President George W. Bush Jr. said:

“Laura and I join the people of South Africa and the world in celebrating the life of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. President Mandela was one of the great forces for freedom and equality of our time. He bore his burdens with dignity and grace, and our world is better off because of his example. This good man will be missed, but his contributions will live on forever. Laura and I send our heartfelt sympathy to President Mandela’s family and to the citizens of the nation he loved.”

Former President George H.W. Bush Sr. said:

"Barbara and I mourn the passing of one of the greatest believers in freedom we have had the privilege to know. As President, I watched in wonder as Nelson Mandela had the remarkable capacity to forgive his jailers following 26 years of wrongful imprisonment - setting a powerful example of redemption and grace for us all. He was a man of tremendous moral courage, who changed the course of history in his country. Barbara and I had great respect for President Mandela, and send our condolences to his family and countrymen."

This is a truly sad loss for the world!

    ok, he's dead, 95 years old, not even American, now lets move on. Fox news wants to educate people about nelson madela, I guess they don't realize we can turn the channel.

    Well it's nice that these criminals respected him, it was not reciprocated - he thought they were warmongers.

    Nice that they're not stupid enough to ignore him, with them being racists. And shut the fuck up, Re: shaygirl1309 – because he was one of the very, VERY few people who was still living to literally change an entire country, if not the world, and be punished for it and take the punishment with pride. Show a little fucking respect.
