Nelson Mandela’s memorial took place today and many of the world leaders attended. Our own President, Barack Obama spoke, and named Mandela, “…a giant of history.”
The Memorial took place at Johannesburg’s FNB stadium, where South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma, Cuba’s President Raul Castro, thousands of South Africans, celebrities and many more, showed up in the pouring rain to celebrate the life of Mr. Mandela. It was less sadness and sorrow, but more celebration and happiness. Hit the jump to check it out.
