Keep your thoughts positive!

Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been hospitalized due to another lung infection. He is currently in serious but stable condition.

The 94-year-old, first black president of South Africa suffered as his "condition deteriorated and he was transferred to a Pretoria hospital," the office of South African President Jacob Zuma reports.

The office of the current president has released a statement:

"The former President is receiving expert medical care and doctors are doing everything possible to make him better and comfortable. President Jacob Zuma, on behalf of government and the nation, wishes Madiba a speedy recovery and requests the media and the public to respect the privacy of Madiba and his family."

He has previously been hospitalized with lung infections in December 2012 and as recently as March 2013.

We hope Nelson is able to make it through this hospitalization!

Our thoughts and prayers are with him!
