“For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” (Nelson Mandela). Nelson Mandela was a catalyst for global change, enduring severe hardships but never let those obstacles distract his focus of liberating South Africa from the Apartheid and its oppressive regimes. In 1944, Mandela co-founded the African National Congress Youth League -- where his revolutionary political activism began, eventually becoming the first black President of South Africa, inspiring not only South Africa but also the world community. Happy Birthday, Nelson - and Thank You.
