This morning (December 5th), a truly great man passed away. Nelson Mandela, born 18 July 1918, was an anti-apartheid activist and really, do I need to tell you who he was? I think the man and his deeds are well-known.
What I want to share is that to one of my best friends, from South Africa, Nelson Mandela is the reason why she can even come to Japan to study. For that alone, I would have been eternally grateful.
Rest In Peace.
