Nelson Mandela Day

ABOUT NELSON MANDELA

As one of the greatest inspirations in world history, it is important to remember the messages and story of Nelson Mandela.

On a lifelong mission to unite his country of South Africa and promote global reconciliation, Nelson Mandela serves as a symbol of peace today. From a young age, Mandela participated in protests that advocated for equality. Moved to drive change, Mandela bravely stood for equality. “I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die”.

Demonstrating a passion for a better world, Mandela was arrested in 1964 and was not released until 1990. Four years later, he became South Africa’s first democratically elected President. Promising his country he would step down after one term as President, Mandela then invested his energies into his own organizations that harnessed youth empowerment. His death on the 5th of December 2013 was a great loss to the world.

A wave of empowerment, a symbol of hope, a martyr of peace, Nelson Mandela’s vision must be kindled to remind us of the lessons we have learned as a global community.

In his autobiography he wrote, “I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended”.

UNESCO Center for Peace is determined not to let his long walk end.
