Nelson Mandela's Death

On Thursday the 5th of December, a tragic event shocked the world. Nelson Mandela had died. Nelson Rolihlahal Mandela had died in hospital. In his earlier years, he was a amateur boxer. He started fighting at the age of 14. He had a tough childhood in South Africa but grew up to be the man.

          When he grew up, he helped fight for equal rights. As he done that, he got imprisoned because he was black. For 27 long years he was imprisoned. Once he got out, he was named the new President of South Africa. He was named because he was equal and fair.

          I wish he was still alive. He was a good man. I think they made the right decision making him president. From his tough life to a great future in Heaven. Nelson Mandela, born on July 18 and died December 5th.
