After Nelson Mandela died on Dec. 5 at the age of 95, President Obama, former Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush, and a bevy of celebrities are remembering the beloved former South African president’s amazing legacy.
The world is heartbroken after Nelson Mandela sadly passed away on Dec.5, 2013 at home in Houghton, South Africa. The revolutionary leader — who had been suffering from a recurring lung infection and was frequently in the hospital over the last year — will never be forgotten. Nelson has touched so many lives, including that of former professional boxer Muhammad Ali, who released a touching statement praising the late leader on Dec. 5.
Muhammad expressed his admiration for Nelson and the impact he had on the world, saying:
I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Mandela. His was a life filled with purpose and hope; hope for himself, his country and the world. »
