It's my thought for the day that I wish to share with everybody.The above Photograph is of Nelson Mandela.who had ed the African National Congress, a black liberation group that opposed South Africa’s white minority government and apartheid.... Mandela was initially opposed to violence, but after a massacre of unarmed black South Africans in 1962, he began advocating acts of sabotage against the government. In 1962, he began a twenty-seven year stay in prison. Most of his confinement was spent during hard labor at the notorious Robben Island maximum-security prison. During his imprisonment, he became a symbol of the anti-apartheid movement among South Africa’s black population and among the international community that opposed apartheid. He had rejected several government offers to allow him to leave prison on the condition that he renounce violence. Mandela was released from prison and instantly became an international celebrity. Mandela shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 with F.W. deKlerk, South Africa’s last white president. Their combined efforts ended apartheid and brought about a peaceful transition to nonracial democracy in South Africa. Three years after his release, South Africans of all races were allowed to vote for the first time in a national election. They selected Mandela as their president, giving him 62% of the vote. The same person who was once was a symbol of black resistance in South Africa later eventually because the nation’s first black President. His Government was praised for its treatment of South Africa’s white minorities. One white South African told our class in 1996 that he has treated us better than we treated him. His Government had its critics. Crime increased during his term, but the violent war between the races ended. Every South African were glad that their life is better today than it was before he had taken oath of Presidency of South Africa. H had married for the third time on his eightieth birthday in 1998. A year later he retired from the Presidency. The four hundred year-old prison on Robben Island is now a museum. Mandela is a vocal supporter of SOS Children's Villages, the world's largest organisation dedicated to raising orphaned and abandoned children. Mandela appeared in a televised advertisement for the 2006 Winter Olympics, and was quoted for the International Olympic Committee's Celebrate Humanity campaign. Mandela Day on the 18th July is an annual international day adopted by the United Nations.
