As we all know, Nelson Mandela spent nearly 30 years in jail because he was fighting against injustice in South Africa. He learned about apartheid and thought that it was unfair and wrong, so he decided to fight the forces of evil and was sent to jail.
After 27 years, he was let go and sent home. Then he ended up becoming president of South Africa. That happened in the year 1994, two years before I was born.
Today, we as humanity must mourn his death and remember the lessons that he taught us, such as the fight against injustice is never easy, but the fight must be fought.
