R.I.P My Hero, Nelson Mandela

4 replies • Last post

Nelson Mandela has been one of my heroes for many years now. I admire him so much, how much he went through in his life, and the type of man he remained until the end. I studied him in school, read much about him, even wrote papers about him, and I have followed his life, as have many.

I admire him so very much, and I am amazed that even after all he went through in his life, he lived to be 95 years old. That alone is amazing. He carried himself with grace and a positive disposition even when he had reason to become bitter and give up. He always pushed forward bravely and always with class. He will be remembered forever, his legacy will live on; he is one of a kind, one of the few left in the world who deserves to be called a true hero.

R.I.P. Nelson Mandela

His amazing accomplishments are too many to list here, so I will just attach the articles.

EXACTLY, CL-Ed!

I cannot WAIT to see the movie with Idris Elba playing Mandela (MOVE OVER Denzel, I have a NEW MAD CRUSH, lol)

I guess Elba and others (including Prince William and Kate) were at the premiere of the movie in London, and they heard about Mandela's death right AFTER the viewing of the premiere.

Here is the trailer. I hope my dear Idris Elba (LOVE YOU, Luther! lol Elba was excellent in The Wire but he played such a creepy character, but I ADORE him as Luther in the BBC crime drama) gets nominated for an award:

Oops! I just found an Idris Elba fan site. And I found this. lol I don't get celebrity crushes very often, but this man is an exception. Most of all, I really love how his acting career is taking off, and he did an awesome job with Long Walk to Freedom from what I am hearing.
